I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Oregon. Before moving to Oregon, I held a permanent position of Member of Technical Staff at Nokia Bell Labs in Dublin, Ireland in 2016. I received the Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) degree in computer science from University of Göttingen (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen) in Germany in 2014. I was a Researcher at IBM Research in Beijing, China in 2010. My research interests span optimization and control and their application to systems and networks. In particular, I devise models, algorithms, and performance analysis for emerging problems in edge computing, cloud data centers, online social networks, and more recently, network security.
Note: I am looking for Ph.D. students (application link here) and visiting students for 2018. Financial support is available. You are most welcome to contact me for more information if you are interested.
