I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Oregon. Before moving to Oregon, I had been working at Nokia Bell Labs in Dublin, Ireland since 2014 and held a permanent position of Member of Technical Staff 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, and was also a Researcher at IBM Research in Beijing, China in 2010 prior to my Ph.D. study. My research interests are 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 a range of intertwined problems such as resource allocation, service/data placement, workload scheduling, and energy efficiency.
In University of Oregon an academic year consists of four terms.
In Germany an academic year consists of two semesters.
