I am a tenure-track assistant professor at Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Oregon, while also affiliated with Center for Cyber Security and Privacy. Before relocating to Oregon in the fall of 2016, I held a permanent position of member of technical staff at Nokia Bell Labs in Dublin, Ireland. I received the Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) degree in computer science from University of Göttingen in Göttingen, Germany in 2014. Prior to that, I worked as a researcher at IBM Research in Beijing, China in 2010.
My research interests are broadly in optimization and control of systems and networks. I work on system modeling, algorithm design, performance analysis, and performance evaluation. The problem domains I focus on include edge computing, cloud computing, and online social networking.
To students: I have openings for research assistantships and I am recruiting Ph.D. students. Please contact me if you are interested.
