About Me

I am a 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 systems. Recent focus has been on privacy-preserving on spatio-temporal data, mobile data management, IoT and location-based services.
