About Me

I am an associate 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 in 2010, I spent 9 months at Northeastern University as a postdoctoral research associate working with Prof. Noubir.

My research interests include mobile computing, big data, cloud computing, cyber security, and wireless networks.

Graduate research assistant positions are available for highly motivated applicants.
