Qiang Zeng

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at University of South Carolina. I received my Ph.D. from Penn State University, and my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Beihang University. The easiest way to contact me is through email at zeng1 (at) cse.sc.edu.

My main research interest is Software and Systems Security, with a focus on Internet of Things and Mobile Computing. I also work on the security aspect of machine learning. I have rich industry experience and have worked in the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, the NEC Lab America, Symantec and Yahoo.

Our lab is recruiting PhD, Master and Undergraduate students.

Our HBCU-USC Collaborative Center looks for students from underrepresented groups to join us.
