About Me

I am Weiping Pei, an Assistant Professor in the School of Cyber Studies at The University of Tulsa. I received my Ph.D degree in Computer Science from Colorado School of Mines in 2022, under the supervision of Professor Chuan Yue. Before that, I got my B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees from Sun Yat-sen University. My research interests are broadly in the area of security and privacy, crowdsourcing, and machine learning. For more information, please view my CV.

I'm looking for self-motivated students (both undergraduates and graduates) who are interested in doing Crowdsourcing, AI, Web, Mobile, and IoT systems security & privacy research. Please stop by my office or send me an email with a brief introduction of yourself. Thank you!
