About me

I am a Research Scientist at Facebook since June 2015.
Prior to joining Facebook, I was a Ph. D. student in the Dependable Networking and Computing Group, led by Prof. Hongwei Zhang in the Computer Science Department of Wayne State University. My primary interest lied in predictable and reliable communication for wireless and sensor networks, especially with real-time networking for sensing and control. Vehicular networks, cognitive radio and embedded systems also fascinated me. I worked at the confluence of theory and systems, designing MAC, routing, and cross-layer protocols with theoretical foundation as well as empirical considerations. Prior to joining Wayne State University, I received my bachelor degree in Computer Science from Wuhan University, China.
