Security & PrivAcy (NESA) Research Lab, directed by Dr. Shouling Ji, works at the intersection of AI, network systems, data
analytics, and information security fields. The lab seeks to develop theories, techniques, and systems to enable a more
secure and efficient network infrastructure, with computer systems that are more accountable and less vulnerable to
attacks and abuse.
Our current research focuses on five areas: (1) Data-Driven Security, (2) AI and Security, (3) Software and System Security, (4) CV and Multimedia Understanding, and (5) Big Data Mining and Analysis.
