Du­ring my Mas­ter’s de­gree, I in­ves­ti­ga­ted the se­cu­ri­ty of block­chain-ba­sed sys­tems and de­ve­lo­ped au­to­ma­ted tools for de­tec­ting bugs in Ethe­re­um smart contracts. Now, my pri­ma­ry re­se­arch in­te­rest lies in the in­ter­sec­tion of ma­chi­ne le­arning and cy­ber­se­cu­ri­ty, stu­dy­ing vul­nerabi­li­ties of ma­chi­ne le­arning sys­tems, as well as how to apply ma­chi­ne le­arning tech­ni­ques to solve se­cu­ri­ty pro­blems.
