I'm a Senior Lecturer at the School of Computer Science at The University of Sydney.

I finished my Ph.D. in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto, working with Prof. Ben Liang.

I received B.Eng. degree from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications in telecommunications engineering in 2009 and M.A.Sc. degree from the University of British Columbia in electrical and computer engineering in 2011.

My research interests cover the broad area of networked systems, with particular emphasis on analysis and optimization of mobile networks, Internet of Things, and edge computing.
