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 are broadly in the models, algorithms, and analysis for the optimization and control of distributed systems and networks. Centering on edge computing and cloud computing, I have been working on problems such as resource allocation, service placement, energy efficiency, and security.
