About Me

I am currently a PhD student at The University of Texas at Austin. My research interests are concerned with the area of computer networks.
Currently, my primary area of focus within computer networks is wireless networking.
I am a member of the Wireless Network Management lab, under the supervision of Professor Lili Qiu.

I am also an Assistant Instructor for CS 108 Software Systems: UNIX (Course Homepage).
