What's new

I will be joining the Department of Computer Science at University of Kentucky as an Assistant Professor

Education

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Computer Science, University of Texas at Austin. My advisor is Prof. Simon S. Lam, which means I am a part of the Leonard Kleinrock's family tree. I am the recipient of the James C. Browne Graduate Fellowship in 2012 (list of Browne Fellowship awardees for 2001-2012). I interned at AT&T Labs-Research in May-Aug, 2012.

I got the Master of Philosophy from Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, where I worked with Prof. Lionel M. Ni, and also had collaborations with Prof. Yunhao Liu. I was awarded the two-year HKUST Postgraduate Studentship.

I received my Bachelor's degree (highest honor) from Department of Computer Science, Nanjing University in 2006, under the supervision of Prof. Jiafu Xu and Prof. Fangmin Song.

I was born in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China.

Research Interests

Computer networks and distributed systems, cloud computing and data center networks, network infrastructure for big data, Ethernet-based networks, wireless networks, mobile computing and cyber-physical systems, network security and privacy .
