Ming Li is an assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science at Utah State University (USU). He currently leads the Cyber Security and Privacy (SPICY) lab at USU. He received Ph.D. in 2011 from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and earned his B.E. and M.E. degrees from Beihang University China in 2005 and 2008, respectively. Dr. Li's research work has appeared in premier journals and conferences including IEEE JSAC, TWC, TPDS, ACM TOSN, IEEE INFOCOM, SECON, ICDCS, ICNP, ACM ASIACCS, WiSec, ESORICS, etc.
His main research interests are in the areas of Cyber Security and Privacy, with current emphases on the following topics:
Security and privacy in cloud computing and big data;
Wireless networks and security, e.g., cognitive radio networks and mobile social networks.
Security in cyber-physical systems, e.g., E-healthcare system and smart grid;
In the past, he has also done research in wireless networking and mobile computing, with emphases on network coding, opportunistic routing and broadcast.
