Short Bio

In 2017, I caught an opportunity to change my major to Computer Science. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor’s degree in advertising. I studied through the Post-Baccalaureate program offered by the CS department at Portland State University for one year and got admission to its Master’s program. I earned my MS degree in 2019 and decided to keep my journey in more complicated but fundamental research.

I am currently a third-year Ph.D. student at Portland State University supervised by Prof. Fang Song. I am interested in theoretical Computer Science on varied topics, especially quantum computing and post-quantum cryptography.

Personal Hobbies

I enjoy my life through movies, reading, music, and art.

My favorite pianist/composer is Dustin O’Halloran who wrote music for many movies. I like photography, watercolor, crochet/knitting, etc. Some of my amateur practice can be found here.
