I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am advised by Prof. Patrick McDaniel and am a member of MadS&P research group. I have received my B.S. degree in Computer Science (Honors, advised by Adwait Nadkarni) and Mathematics from William & Mary.
My research mainly focuses on designing trustworthy Machine Learning models -- evaluating and improving their robustness, explainability, and fairness. I am interested in the attack and defense mechanisms of adversarial machine learning from both architectural and training perspectives. Overall, I want to explore different angels of trustworthy AI and their broad applications in security and privacy.
At my free times, I love playing table tennis, biking, hiking, and snowboarding. Immersing myself in nature makes me feel incredibly refreshing and empowered!
