I am a third-year PhD student from the College of Information Science and Technology at Pennsylvania State University. I am fortunate to be advised by Dr. Xinyu Xing. My Research focuses on OS exploitation and defense. I love hacking in the real world. I have done many Linux kernel exploitation and contributed many security fixes to Linux kernel. I used to play CTF a lot with team Nu1L.
