About Me

I am a third-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at the University of Maryland, College Park, advised by Prof. Tom Goldstein.

I am interested in computer vision and machine learning. My current research mainly focuses on security and privacy in generative models, including diffusion models and large language models.
