​​​​​Research Interests

My research interests are Computer Networks, Internet of Things.

What long-term project do you want to work on?

Currently, I'm working on the project Smart Home Network. We intend to build an anomaly detection system in the home router to protect the smart home devices and secure the home network.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

The work is closely related to our lives. It is very practical and if we dig into it, we will find it really necessary. If we have some idea, we can simply do it on the devices and get results quickly.

I want to be a teacher in the future to give out what I know to other people in a way clear and easy to understand. Technician or research stuff of companies like Microsoft is another goal for me.
