Yuxin Chen 陈裕昕

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Chicago. I am working in the SAND Lab, co-advised by Professor Ben Y. Zhao and Professor Heather Zheng . I received my bachelor degree of Computer Science from Fudan University in 2017.

I am broadly interested in security & privacy, human computer interaction and deep learning. Recently, I am focusing on two directions: exploring systems/hardware integrated with human body to solve security and privacy problems, and investigating security and privacy problems caused by human body.
