Research Interests

I am generally interested in the research issues involving security and privacy in distributed information systems, database systems and communication networks. My current specific research interests lie in:

•   Social media and social network security;

•   Anonymous routing and network security;

•   Smart grid security, CPS security;

•   Health informatics, secure data sharing and data publishing.

More details about my research can be found at my group, publications and Google Scholar.

I'm also affliated to the Information Assurance Laboratory (IAL) of the Information & Telecommunication Technology Center (ITTC). For more information, please check out IAL lab wiki.
