a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computing at Newcastle
University. My research interests fall
under the broad heading of cyber security, e.g.
applied cryptography, trust management, data
privacy and security policies. My recent work
focuses mostly on designing practical secure
computation protocols with applications to large
scale privacy preserving data processing. The
application domains include for example privacy
preserving medical data analytics, secure cloud
computing, privacy preserving data mining and
private data processing in mobile and wireless
coming to Newcastle, I was a Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde,
before that a post-doctoral researcher in
the Policy group at Imperial College London. I
received my PhD and MSc from Imperial in 2009
and 2005 respectively. I received my BSc degree
from Fudan University in 1999.
I also worked several years as a network
engineer back in China.
