About Me

I am a second year PhD student in the department of Computer Science at the Georgia Institute of Technology, affiliated with the Distributed Data Intensive Systems Lab (DiSL). I am advised by Prof. Ling Liu.

My research lies at a broad level within database systems and distributed computing. Recent focus has been on privacy preserving on spatio-temporal data, privacy-aware mobile data management and distributed location privacy preserving.
