About Me

I am an assistant professor in Computer Science Department at University of Massachusetts Boston. I received my Ph.D. from College of William and Mary in 2010 (under the supervision of Prof. Li) and my B.S. from Nanjing University (China) in 2000, both in Computer Science. Before joining Umass Boston, I spent 9 months at Northeastern University as a postdoc working with Prof. Noubir.

My research interests include wireless networks and embedded systems with an emphasis on efficiency and security problems.
