Welcome to Yuanyuan’s homepage!

I’m currently a final year Ph.D. candidate at CSE department, HKUST. I’m very fortunate and honored to work under the supervision of Prof. Shuai Wang. During my Ph.D. journey, I also spent a wonderful year at ETH Zurich, supervised by Prof. Zhendong Su. Before joining HKUST, I received my B.S. from Fudan University.

My research aims to comprehensively harden and secure modern AI systems. I pursue this goal from the algorithm (e.g., new attacks), software (e.g., testing, verification), and hardware (e.g., side channel, low-level executable) perspectives.
