I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Oregon. I worked at Nokia Bell Labs in Dublin, Ireland previously, and held a permanent position of Member of Technical Staff in 2016. I received the Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) degree in computer science (Informatik) from University of Göttingen (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen) in Germany in 2014. I also worked as a Researcher at IBM Research in Beijing, China in 2010.
I am broadly interested in the mathematical and algorithmic sciences for systems and networks. I explore optimization, control, and mechanism design to drive the intelligent management of large-scale distributed computing and communication infrastructures and services. Focusing on cloud and edge, I have been working on a range of problems, including resource allocation, service placement, workload scheduling, data caching, energy efficiency, and incentives/payment.
In University of Oregon an academic year consists of four terms.
In Germany an academic year consists of two semesters.
