Kicho Yu (유기초)

About Me

🫡 Hi, I am Kicho Yu. I go by either Kicho or SGT Yu.

💻 I am a Computer Science Ph.D. student at the USC (University of Southern California) in the ANT (Analysis of Network Traffic) Lab, where I am advised by Professor John Heidemann.

🛡️ I am interested in solving problems in network security with my background in statistics and data analytics. My current research focuses on how to share network traffic without compromising privacy and security. I believe that we can share more network data, thanks to the current encryption. Overall, my research area is network, security, and federated learning.

🌉 Before I joined USC, I worked as a data scientist / analyst / engineer in San Francisco Bay Area at numerous companies such as Lyft (payment data pipeline), Allstate (SquareTrade), AnchorFree (product: Hotspot Shield), Nuna Health, and The SPHERE Institute.
