I’m Head of Technology & co-founder of Zilliqa, the next-gen high-throughput blockchain platform with the advances in sharding and multi-signing primitives. My currenct focus is on decentralizing the web in a secure/scalable/incentivized/privacy-preserving manner.
Prior to that, I was a Research Fellow at the National University of Singapore. I got my Ph.D. in School of Computing at NUS in 2017, under the advisement of LIANG Zhenkai and Prateek Saxena. Before coming to NUS, I obtained my B.S. degree in Computer Science in Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2012.
My research interests span the areas of web security/privacy, network security and distributed system security. During my Ph.D., I have proposed solutions to secure the web infrastructure from two perspectives – networking and system, e.g., addressing privacy / consensus issues in web overlays and identifying new attacks/vulnerabilities in web browsers.
My research work has been published in CCS, USENIX Security, PETS, RAID, ESORICS etc. I have received the Best Paper Award in W2SP (2014) and ICECCS (2014). My work got acknowledged by various vendors including Google and Apple (CVE-2014-7948 for Chrome and CVE-2015-5907 for Safari), as well as received attention from the media including Dailydot, Gizmodo and Techspot.
