About Me


Currently I am a PhD Candidate in Computer Science Department at Purdue University with Professor Elisa Bertino as my thesis advisor. My research is primarily related to privacy-preserving data analytics with focus on private record linkage and secure outsourced computation. I received my MS and BS degree both in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at National Sun Yat-sen University in 2005 and 2003, respectively.
