He is currently a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) specializing in Information Systems and Business Analytics at Virginia Tech under the direction of Drs. Paul Benjamin Lowry and G. Alan Wang. I expect to complete my Ph.D. by May 2022. His professional experiences at Samsung Electronics and AltenCalsoftLabs as a principal staff engineer qualify him to teach practical applications of business information technology. Several products his team and he developed were introduced in Consumer Electric Show (CES), Mobile World Congress (MWC), and IoT World. 

He mainly studies privacy and security regarding advanced technology, such as mobile, IoT, AI, and big data. His current research focuses on how sustainability, trust, and cognitive biases affect consumers’ or organizations’ privacy and security decisions based on advanced technology. He is presently preparing a four-chapter dissertation and multiple post-dissertation studies for submission to several leading journals this year and next year.
