I am a first-year PhD Student in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University, working with Prof. David Choffnes. My research interests include network measurement and IoT security and privacy.
Before joining Northeastern, I obtained my MS from Virginia Tech under the supervision of Prof. Gang Wang and Prof. Bimal Viswanath.

Detecting Bots with Limited Data using Neural Data Augmentation
- Build a stream-based real-time bot detection system to complement with rule-based method to catch advanced bots.
- Develop a data synthesis method to enable effective model training with limited labeled data.
- Validate our system using real-world datasets from 3 different online services.
- Sustain our system over a long period of time with low-cost retraining.
- Explore the relationship between data synthesis and adversarial re-training.
