I am part of the Computer Security group at UC Davis. In research, I am interested in security issues related to both networking and networked (if you can tell the difference) systems. Currently, I have been working on the following research areas: Unknown vulnerability analysis, IPSec/VPN Policy Management, Routing protocol security, Internet architecture, Mobility, Secure computer architecture, Email Antispam, Information Visualization for Security, Anomaly Analysis and Explanation. Very soon, I realized that I was probably interested in too many things. Therefore, my latest focus has been on the DSL (Davis Social Links) project, which is currently sponsored by NSF/FIND, NSF/BBN/GENI, Army/ARO/MURI, Air Force/AFOSR/MURI, and most recently ARL/CTA Network Science.
I graduated from Columbia University in 1995, and my advisor was Professor Gail E. Kaiser. My PhD thesis is titled “Epsilon-Consistent Real-Time Monitoring for Rapidly Changing Data.” I was a faculty member in the Computer Science department at Columbia University from 1994 to 1995, and NC State University from 1995 to 2000 before joining UC Davis. I got my undergraduate degree in computer science from Tunghai University, Taichung in 1985, and my MS degree also in computer science from Columbia University in 1989.
