I design network systems to handle the volume and unpredictable nature of today's data traffic. Driven by models and measurements, my work designs dynamic spectrum auction systems to support dynamic traffic demands in wireless networks, and a new wireless primitive to address dynamic traffic hotspots in data centers.

I just received my PhD in Computer Science at UC Santa Barbara. I work in the LINK Laboratory under the supervision of Professor Heather Zheng.

I have joined Dartmouth College as an Assistant Professor in Computer Science Department. I am looking for motivated students on networking systems and algorithms. Please email me if you are interested in working with me at Dartmouth. Here is my current website.
