About Zhouhan Chen

Hi, I'm Zhouhan. I am the founder of Safe Link Network. I build technologies to detect abuse on the Internet, such as project Malware Discoverer and Information Tracer. I also provide consultant services to help companies extract insights from complex data sets. My client includes organizations of various sizes, including Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

I received my PhD from New York University Center for Data Science. My thesis -- "Be careful what you click: tracing URLs that spread false or malicious information" -- investigates how technologies such as online social media can be abused and how to detect malicious actors. You can find my publications here.

I'm an avid learner and dedicated marathon runner. My favorite quote is from legendary runner Eliud Kipchoge: "Only the disciplined ones are free in life. If you are undisciplined, you are a slave to your moods, you are a slave to your passions. That’s a fact." I recently finished the Marin Ultra Challenge (50 mile) and I am currently training for Pikes Peak Ascent.

I keep a personal blog to share my thoughts about technology, sports, food and life in general. Please if you are interested :-)
