Yuhang Wu's Page


My name is Yuhang Wu, a first-year PhD student advised by Dr. Xinyu Xing in Northwestern University. I major in network/system security. I used to research on Web security and I had participated in many security competitions (CTFs) in which I solve Web challenges with my teammates of Nu1L(Straw Hat) and Tea Deliverers. I have provided some challenges for well-known worldwide CTF competitions(Realworld CTF, N1CTF, etc.). Before joining Northwestern University, I interned at Penn State University for one year.
