Welcome to my homepage! I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Information Science and Technology@ ShanghaiTech University.

I received my Ph.D. from the information engineering department @ The Chinese University of Hong Kong in August 2010. My advisor was Prof. Shuo-Yen Robert Li (Bob li). I was then a postdoctoral researcher in the same department from September 2010 to November 2012, working with Prof. Minghua Chen. Then I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of Network Coding @ The Chinese University of Hong Kong from December 2012 to December 2013, working with Prof. Bob Li and Prof. Raymond Yeung. Prior to my Ph.D., I received my B.S. and M.E from Peking University, Beijing, China, both in EE.

I have been a visiting scholar at the EE department @ Princeton University, working with Prof. Mung Chiang.

I have been a visiting professor at the RISELab (previously AMPLab) of EECS department @ University of California at Berkeley, working with Prof. Ion Stoica and Prof. Michael Jordan

Prof. Jean Walrand served as a member of my Ph.D. Thesis Committee.
