I am currently a Ph.D. candidate of Department of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts, Boston (UMB). My researches mainly focus on security and privacy solutions for applications relating to big-data and IoT/Smart home systems. I work under supervision of Professor Xiaohui Liang who directs the Mobile Computing and Privacy (MobCP) Lab . I received my B.S. from the VNU University of Engineering and Technology(Vietnam) in 2001, and my MSc. from Ho Chi Minh National University in 2010, both in Computer Science. Before joining UMass Boston in 2019, I had worked as a lecturer for the University of Transport and Communications (Vietnam) for fifteen and a half years.
