Bio: I am with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Auburn University since Fall 2017. I completed my B.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, in 2006 and 2011, respectively, and received the Excellent Doctoral Thesis Award of Tsinghua University. I was a postdoctoral scholar at the Ohio State University during 2011-2014, and a research associate at the Ohio State University during 2014-2017. My research interests span across the fundamental theory and practical implementations of communication and computer networks to support emerging real-time applications:

Theory: Mathematical optimization, probability theory, stochastic processes, Markov decision process, information theory, machine learning

Applications: Age of information, cloud computing, wireless networks, millimeter wave, Massive MIMO, Internet-of-Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and robotics control

Here are some recent talks and posters:

  1. Age-of-Information: Optimizing the Freshness of Real-Time Data [slides]

  2. On Delay-Optimal Scheduling of Replications in Multi-Server Systems: A New Sample-path Method [slides]

  3. Super Fast Beam Tracking in Phased Antenna Arrays [poster]
