Assistant Researcher in ZGC Lab

I am an Assistant Researcher at Zhongguancun Laboratory (ZGC Lab), Beijing. I received my Ph.D. from Network and Information Security Lab (NISL) at Tsinghua University (advised by Prof. Haixin Duan) in 2023.

My research focuses on measuring and enhancing the security of Internet infrastructure (DNS, Web PKI, CDN, etc.), uncovering significant vulnerabilities in core protocols (DNS, HTTP, TLS, DKIM, SPF, etc.), and understanding emerging cyberspace security threats.
