During Jul 2016 - Nov 2018, I worked as an Athene Young Investigator at TU Darmstadt, Germany. Before that, I had a brief stay as a research associate at SnT Luxembourg. I obtained my PhD in computer science with distinction from the Institute of Computing Technology (ICT), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). During Sep 2012 - Jan 2014, I was a visiting researcher at IMDEA Networks Institute, Spain.
