Halo, this is Tian. I am currently a PhD student at Purdue University, working with Professor Aniket Kate. I received my undergraduate degree in Economics from Renmin University of China, Beijing, China. I expect to receive my Master degree in CS from Purdue University, West Lafayette, US, in May, 2022. 

My research interests are mostly in game theory, mechanism design and secure computation. I usually work on problems related to correctness, privacy protection and incentive design in secure distributed computation. In general, my motivation for research is to understand costs of delegating centralized functionalities to distributed computation.
