Licheng Luo

I am currently a second-year MSCS student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, advised by Prof. Gang Wang . My research interest lies in computer security.

I earned my bachelor's degree also from UIUC. In the past few summers, I interned at Veriflow, Google and Facebook writing software tools to document backend endpoints, debug configuration errors, and efficiently handle large amount of data records.

Research

My research focuses on computer security. My previous projects covers a wide range of computer security topics including network security, architecture side-channels, applied cryptography and machine learning. I worked with amazing faculty here including Prof. Michael Bailey, Prof. Andrew Miller, Prof. Christopher Fletcher and Prof. Gang Wang in the Security and Privacy Research at Illinois (SPRAI) group.
