Mentoring

I am constantly recruiting self-motivated PhD students to join my dynamic and active group for interesting and exciting research!

  • Please drop me an e-mail anytime with your curriculum vitae, and check our department's graduate application instructions.
    • You are expected to have relatively good math knowledge (e.g., calculus, probabilities, algorithm analysis), besides programming skills. Students typically need to learn more math (e.g., optimization) while working with me. So, willingness to learn is very important. I conduct regular meetings and discussions with students, so that we can think and explore together. My group often operates in the Center for Cyber Security and Privacy as part of a larger group of faculty and students.
  • If you are already a University of Oregon student and want to do your master or bachelor thesis with me, please also let me know.
  • You are most welcome as a visiting researcher to visit us (and the beautiful Willamette Valley) in Oregon. Feel free to reach out.
