Brief Bio

I am an assistant professor in the Dept. of Computing Science at Thompson Rivers University, Canada. Previously I was a postdoctoral fellow with the Coordinated Science Laboratory, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working with Prof. R Srikant. I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo, Canada, in 2015, with my thesis supervised by Prof. Xuemin (Sherman) Shen. I received the B.E. and M.E. degrees in electrical engineering from Tongji University, Shanghai, China, in 2007 and 2010, respectively. I spent the summer of 2009 as an intern in the National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, Japan.
