I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Computing and Information Technology in Beijing Jiaotong University. My current research interests are focused on Blockchain and Data Privacy. I received my MSc degree from Imperial College London and my Ph.D. degree in Information Science from University of Pittburgh.
