I am now a professor at College of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC).
I joined UESTC in 2015 right after I got my PhD degree in College of Computer Science, Zhejiang University (ZJU).
I received my BS Degree in School of Electronic and Information Engineering from Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU) in 2010.
My research interests include wireless and mobile computing, low power and networked systems, edge computing, AIoT, future networks, etc.
My research pursuit is to break the border between network and computing, and empower anywhere, anytime and device-free apps for smart life.
I am a member of CCF, ACM and IEEE, and also a big fan of football and Dota.
To date I have published 60+ peer-reviewed papers on reputable conferences and journals in the areas of edge computing and IoT. Check my full list at Google scholar
