😎 About Me

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), advised by Prof. Nenghai Yu. I received my bachelor's degree from the School of Information and Software Engineering, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, in 2018 and received my Ph.D degree in cyberspace security from the School of Cyber Science and Technology, USTC, in 2023, advised by Prof. Kaiping Xue.

My current research interests include quantum internet architecture, quantum networking, and network security. I have participated in multiple scientific research projects. So far, I have published 10+ papers in related journals such as IEEE Communications Surveys & Tutorials, IEEE Network, IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (TNSM), China Communications, etc . Besides, I have been invited many times to be a reviewer for international journals such as China Communications, IEEE Network, IEEE TNSM, and IET Quantum Communications. If you are interested in similar research and seeking any form of academic cooperation, please feel free to email me at leestone at ustc.edu.cn.
