AS3R Lab

Advanced System Safety and Security Research Lab

The Advanced System Safety and Security Research Lab, under the leadership of Prof. Yuqi Chen at the School of Information Science and Technology, ShanghaiTech University, is a pioneering laboratory dedicated to advancing research in software engineering and cyber security. With a primary focus on cutting-edge areas such as autonomous vehicle, cyber-physical system, program analysis, and formal methods, the lab aims to drive innovation and push the boundaries of knowledge in these fields.

Yuqi Chen

Yuqi Chen is an assistant Professor (tenure-track) at School of Information Science and Technology in the ShanghaiTech University. Yuqi completed his Ph.D. in 2019 at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) under the supervision of Sun Jun. Besides, he also collaborated closely with Chris Poskitt. From 2019 to 2021, he worked as a Research Scientist in the System Analysis and Verification (SAV) group group at Singapore Management University(SMU).

His research interest includes AI-based system security, focusing on applying techniques such as program analysis, formal methods, and testing to secure and analyze AI-based systems. These systems include autonomous vehicles, industrial control systems, and robotics systems. Furthermore, he shows interest in exploring strategies for attacking and defending the Large Language Models.


I am looking for self-motivated PhD/MS students, postdoc, and research assistant to conduct research in areas of software engineering, system security, AI security, and autonomous vehicles. Please feel free to drop me an email with your CV if you are interested.
