Guang's Research Home
I'm currently the research director at Shanghai Tree-Graph Blockchain Research Institute (Conflux), which is initiated by Fan Long and Andrew Yao.
Before joining Conflux, I was an assistant professor at Institute of Computing Technology (ICT), Chinese Academy of Sciences, after working as a postdoctoral researcher at Center for the Theory of Interactive Computation (CTIC), Aarhus University.
I finished my Ph.D on August 2015 and defended on December.
In graduate school, I read computer science and mathematics under the advising of Periklis A. Papakonstantinou in Institute for Theoretical Computer Science (a.k.a. IIIS, which is Turing Award winner Andrew Yao’s institute) at Tsinghua University.
Blockchain, Foundations of Cryptography, Game Theory, and Streaming Computation.
