About Me

I am currently a security analyst at Riscure. In my spare time, my security research work was guided by Prof. Yueqi Chen about IoT security. In 2018, I was selected through the Excellent Talent Program and became a student at the School of Cybersecurity, Sichuan University. I received my bachelor’s degree in 2022, supervised by Prof. Xingshu Chen.

I am a CTFer who specializes in reverse engineering. Along with my two roommates, we founded the 0x401 team, which has now become a well-known team.

I have a great interest in the security of satellites, automobiles, and embedded devices, particularly in the areas of firmware and hardware attacks and protection. This includes topics such as TrustZone, Secure Boot, Fuzzing, Emulation, as well as side-channel and fault-injection attacks.

In addition to these interests, I also enjoy traveling, cycling, and photography. At the same time, I have a passion for hacker culture and ham radio culture(SDR).
