About Me

Professional Info

I am currently a MS student under Prof. Choi (David) in School of Computer Science at Stonybrook University. My main interest lie in Personal Security and Human Computer Interaction (HCI). With current available wearable devices, I like to always explore the Security impacts and Innovative methods to resolve the upcoming threats in the cyber world.

My current thesis project utilizes the machine learning and frequency analysis techniques to find unique fingerprints of mundane activities of human. The goal is to have a subconscious mind authentication technique. In broader terms, I am interested in daily human interaction and the security impact on it. I enjoy doing research with highly motivated people.
