Hi, I am Rui Shu (束锐).

I am a third year Ph.D. candidate at department of Computer Science in North Carolina State University.

Currently, I'm working with Prof. Xiaohui(Helen) Gu in Dance Group (Distributed system research on Autonomy, resilieNce, Collaboration, and Energy). I also work closely with Dr. William Enck.

Prior to NCSU, I got my Master degree in Peking University in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Qingni Shen. Before that, I earned my Bachelor degree in Beijing Jiaotong University.

I passed my Written Preliminary Examination on November 11th, 2016. Many thanks to my Examination Committees: Dr. Christopher Parnin (Chair and Department Representative), Dr. Xiaohui(Helen) Gu (Advisor), and Dr. Alexandros Kapravelos (Area Representative).

My research interests mainly include Security Isolation, Intrusion Detection and Security Patching.
