Yinglian Xie has over 10 years of experience in security. Her work has focused on fighting large-scale attacks, where she combines parallel-computing techniques, algorithms for mining large datasets, and security-domain knowledge into a new theme of solutions in "big data for security." Earlier, Dr. Yinglian worked at Microsoft Research and collaborated with many product groups to improve the security of hundreds of millions of online users. She received her Ph.D. degree from the Computer Science Department of Carnegie Mellon University.
In 2013, Dr. Xie and Dr. Fang Yu co-founded DataVisor, when they envisioned a new fraud technology that automatically adapted to attackers without human intervention.
