Openings

I am looking for prospective Ph.D students and visiting scholars. If you are interested in working with me, feel free to send me your CV. Please refer to here for graduate admission information.

Biography

I joined the department of Computer Science and Engineering at SUNY Buffalo as an assistant professor in Spring 2014. I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science, and M.S. in Statistics, both from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, in 2013 and 2012, respectively. I was a member of the Cyber Physical Computing Group led by my Ph.D. advisor, Prof. Tarek F. Abdelzaher. Before starting my Ph.D. study, I received M.E. and B.E. from the School of Computer Science and Technology at Harbin Institute of Technology in China. I have also worked at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center and National Center for Supercomputing Applications. I am a member of ACM and IEEE.

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in the general areas of Internet of things, cyber-physical systems, mobile computing, wireless and sensor networks, crowd and social sensing systems, big data and cloud computing, security and privacy, data mining and machine learning, and renewable energy.
