About

Greetings! Welcome to my homepage. I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Min H. Kao Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I am a member of the MoSIS Lab, under supervison of Dr. Jian Liu.

My research interests encompass the areas of mobile sensing & computing, human-computer interaction, and cybersecurity & privacy. Particularly, I utilize machine learning and signal processing techniques to create next-generation applications for human-computer interaction, smart health monitoring, and identifying potential security/privacy issues on IoT devices.
