About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate of SAND Lab in Computer Science Department of UC Santa Barbara. My advisor is Prof. Heather Zheng. My research interests include Wireless Systems and Networking, Mobile Computing, Wearable Devices and Internet of Things, Online Social Networks.

I received my Bachelor's degree in Department of Electronic Engineering, Tsinghua University at July 2006, and then became a master student in NGN Lab at Tsinghua. My advisor was Prof. Xing Li. I received my Master's degree at July 2009.

I've worked as a research intern in Microsoft Research (Redmond and Asia) for several times. I was mentored by David Chu (Summer 2012), Thomas Moscibroda (Summer 2011) and Yongqiang Xiong (Summer 2007).
