Higher Degree by Research Candidate
School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences
He received his B.Sc degree from Henan University of Science and Technology, Luoyang, China in 2008 and Master degree from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC), ChengDu, China in 2013. Since then, he started working toward his Ph.D degree at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the University of Adelaide. He is advised by Dr Said Al-Sarawi, Damith C. Ranasinghe and professor Derek Abbott. In 2016, he was a visiting student of the System Security Lab, Technische Universität Darmstadt, in Germany, advised by Prof Ahmad-Reza Sadeghi.
His current research interests are hardware security circuit design and its applications (mainly about the physical unclonable function related applications), machine learning and memristive device characterization.
