Jiangshan Yu

Dr Jiangshan Yu

Jiangshan Yu is a lecturer in the Faculty of Information Technology, Monash University, Australia and an honorary research fellow in the Centre for Cyber Security and Privacy, University of Birmingham, UK.

His research on blockchain consensus, named RepuCoin, provides a world-first blockchain system that is able to tolerate 51% attacks. This system has the potential to save millions of US dollars every month from attacks as well as increase the confidence of enterprises in adapting blockchains.

Jiangshan’s work has been covered by numerous global news media publications. His work on ledger-based end-to-end secure messaging systems, called DECIM, provides the first end-to-end secure messaging system that is able to detect the compromise of secret keys.
