  • I am an Associate Professor at the City University Hong Kong. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Rigorous Systems Research Group at the Dept. of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at Caltech with Prof. Steven H. Low. I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 2008, and was with the Edge Lab at Princeton. My PhD advisor was Prof. Mung Chiang. I have worked at Fraser Research Lab and Qualcomm R&D (QRC). I am currently serving as the Chair of the IEEE Information Theory Society Hong Kong Chapter and as an Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications.

    My research interests include networks, statistical inference in online data analytics, cyber security, mobile and cloud computing, optimization theory and its applications.

    I received the 2008 Wu Prize for Excellence from Princeton University and a 2011 IEEE Communications Society Asia-Pacific Outstanding Young Researcher Award. I received a 2013 NSF/TCPP Curriculum Initiative Early Adopter Award for parallel computing in network science. I was twice selected to participate at the U.S. National Academy of Engineering China-America Frontiers of Engineering Symposium in 2013 and 2015. I was also the General Chair of the 2015 IEEE Hong Kong-Taiwan Joint Workshop on Information Theory and Communications sponsored by the Croucher Foundation.
