Welcome to Xueqiang Wang’s homepage!

I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at UCF, where I am also a member of the Cyber Security and Privacy Cluster (CyberSP). I obtained my Ph.D. degree in 2021 from Indiana University Bloomington under the guidance of Dr. XiaoFeng Wang. Prior to that, I earned a Master's degree from IIE CAS in 2015 and a Bachelor's degree from USTC in 2012.

My research interests lie in the broad areas of mobile/IoT security, software supply chain security, and cybercrime. In particular, my current research focuses on safeguarding end-users and developers by identifying new attack vectors, and developing data-driven security analysis methodologies to quantify and measure their security and privacy impacts.
