Jian Cui

Hello, I'm Jian Cui, sharing the exact same name as the the legendary Chinese rock star.

I'm currently in my first year of pursuing a Ph.D. at Indiana University Bloomington (IUB),
under the guidance of Prof. Xiaojing Liao.

Prior to that, I earned both my bachelor's and master's degree in EE from KAIST,
advised by Prof. Seungwon Shin.

My research lies at the intersection of AI and security. I am interested in using AI techniques
to solve security problems, and I am also interested in general AI security and privacy issues.

If you are interested in collaborating with me, please feel free to drop me an email.
