Hi ! I am Vera Xinyue Shen, a first-year Ph.D. student at CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security, co-advised by Michael Backes and Yang Zhang. Previously, I was an Algorithm Engineer at Alibaba Security Department. I obtained my bachelor degree from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China(UESTC) with the highest honor “Outstanding Student of UESTC”. During my undergraduate study, I had research internship at IUB System Security Group and Alibaba.
My research focuses on Cyber Security from Data-driven perspectives, Threat Intelligence, and Social Network Analysis. I am fascinated with the security intersection between human and cyberspace. Understanding and discovering unrevealed attacks and vulnerabilities always excites me!
Innovation is an indispensable part of my life. I am also a science fiction author and publish novels and popular-science articles on magazines, e.g. Science Fiction World, Science Fiction World (Youth), Science Fiction Cube and so on.
