Hello, I'm Binyi Chen

I'm a 5th year PhD student in the Computer Science Department at UCSB.
My advisors are Prof. Stefano Tessaro and Prof. Huijia (Rachel) Lin.
My research has been focused on Security and Cryptography, especially
Password Hashing, Proof-of-Work/Space, and BlockChain.
Before coming to UCSB, I received my BS degree in Computer Science from ACM Honor Class at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
