I am currently serving as an Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications and an Editor for the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking.

    My research interests include networks, statistical inference in data analytics, cyber security, cloud computing, information theory, optimization theory and applications, personalized learning in mathematics and computer science education. My Erdös number is 3.

    I received the Gordon Wu Prize for Excellence from Princeton University and a Chinese Academy of Sciences President Fellowship. I was twice selected to participate at the U.S. National Academy of Engineering China-America Frontiers of Engineering Symposium in 2013 and 2015. Some of my research on network optimization has been featured on Research Frontiers by the Hong Kong Research Grants Council. I was the Chairman of the IEEE Information Theory Society Hong Kong Chapter in 2014 and 2015, during which our chapter won the 2015 IT Society Chapter of the Year award and I also organized the 2015 IEEE Hong Kong-Taiwan Joint Workshop on Information Theory and Communications sponsored by the Croucher Foundation.
