Graduate Research Assistantships available to students wishing to pursuit PhD with me. Preferred qualifications:
  • BS or MS degree in ECE with specialization in wireless communications, information theory, networking, or related areas
  • Strong background in mathematical courses: probability theory, stochastic processes, Markov decision process, optimization, ...
  • Prior publications/research experience is a plus
  • If interested, please send me your CV, representative publications (if any), detailed transcripts with GPA and ranking, GRE/TOEFL scores.


    Bio: I joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Auburn University in 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
