I’m a PhD student of Computer Science Department at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), under the supervision of Prof. Lixia Zhang. Before coming to UCLA, I recevied my Bachelor degree on Electronic and Information Science and Technology from Sichuan University. Currently my reseach interests are Named Data Networking (NDN) and Internet of Things, specifically:

  • Security Bootstrapping in NDN
  • Secure and Resilient Smart Home Systems
  • Dataplane Configuration and Optimization


  • Fall 2019 - Now, Ph.D. candidate, Computer Science Department, UCLA

Industry Experience

Futurewei, Research Intern, June 2021 - September 2021

  • Optimized the SDN dataplane configuration performance by reducing the RPC latency between OvSwitch and controller.
  • Designed and developed a dataplane checker to statically analyze redundancies in dataplane configurations.


The NDN-Lite library implements the Named Data Networking Stack with the high-level application support functionalities and low-level OS/hardware adaptations for Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios. The library is written in standard C and requires a minimum version of C11 (ISO/IEC 9899:2011).
