Short Bio

An joined Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at Case in July, 2018 after she obtained her Ph.D. from George Mason UniversityDepartment of Computer Science, Systems Lab in May 2018, under the supervision of Prof. Songqing Chen


 Multiple research position available for self-motivated Ph.D/MS student interested in computer networks and security, distributed machine learning, edge computing and IoT security

Research Interests

My research interests focus on network securitydistributed system and software-defined networking (SDN). The topics I have been working on include

  • Distributed Denial of Service attacks modeling and mitigation

  • Programmable and flexible network functions integration to SDN architecture 

  • Security and safety monitoring in IoT
