Research projects Mainly on combinatorial design theory and its applications to information theory and bioinformatics. The tools used include finite algebras (e.g. finite fields, finite groups), finite geometries, computational statistics (e.g. Markov chain Monte Carlo, Bayesian networks), game theory, computer search and simulation,
● Information Security: digital fingerprinting, secure combinatorial auctions, secret sharing schemes, authentication codes, signature schemes, elliptic curve cryptography, etc.
● Coding Theory: anti-collusion codes, optical orthogonal codes, frequency-hopping sequences, etc.
● Bioinformatics: motif discovery, group testing for DNA library screening, etc.
● Combinatorial Design Theory: balanced incomplete block designs, group divisible designs, orthogonal arrays, difference families, etc.
Guidelines for advisees If you are interested in combinatorial approach to information systems, welcome to our Lab. I would be very happy if everyone of you could achieve your goals. In order to be successful, you need to
- be confident in your mathematics and/or computer science skills;
- be ambitoius and work hard every weekday;
- enjoy your own study and research.

Please join us and let's enjoy our campus life together.
