I received the B.E. in Computer Science & Technology from Nanjing University of Posts & Telecommunications in 1999, the M.E. in Computer Science & Technology from Beijing University of Posts & Telecommunications in 2002, and the Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Florida in 2006. I came to Arizona State University in June 2010 as an Associate Professor of School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering and the director of ASU Cyber & Network Security Group (CNSG).  Prior to joining ASU, I was an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology from August 2006 to June 2010.

My primary research is about security and privacy issues in computer and networked systems, with current focus areas in emerging wireless networks, mobile crowdsourcing, Internet-of-Things, social networking and computing, wireless/mobile systems for disabled people, big data analytics, mobile/wearable devices, and wireless/mobile health. I am/was on the editorial boards of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, IEEE Wireless Communications, IEEE Transactions on Control of Network Systems, and IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology. I received the US NSF CAREER Award in 2009 and am a senior member of IEEE. I also chaired the 2015 NSF Workshop on Wireless Security and the 2016 ARO-funded Workshop on Trustworthy Human-Centric Social Networking: Challenges and Research Directions.
