To students: I am recruiting motivated Ph.D. and master students with financial support available. You are most welcome to reach out with your CV if you are interested.
I am an assistant professor and a Ripple Fellow in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Oregon. I used to work as a member of technical staff at Nokia Bell Labs in Dublin, Ireland and also as a researcher at IBM Research in Beijing, China. I received the Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) degree in computer science (Informatik) from the University of Göttingen (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen), Germany.
I research large-scale distributed computer and telecommunication systems, networks, and services, spanning edge/cloud computing, AI/ML computing, 5G/6G networks, network security, intelligent transportation, and social networks. I utilize mathematics to lead the design and enhance the performance of novel engineering systems. Via optimization, control, learning, and economics, I model various problems, design algorithms, and derive the theoretical foundations to study system efficiency, scalability, sustainability, and resilience.
I am a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award. I also received the IEEE LANMAN Best Paper Award in 2013, the Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs UK and Ireland Recognition Award in 2016, the IEEE CNS Best Paper Award in 2019, and the Ripple Faculty Fellowship in 2020. I have been on the technical program committees of many conferences, including INFOCOM (as a distinguished member), MOBIHOC, ICDCS, WWW, and IWQoS. I have also served as the program chair of the IEEE Global Internet Symposium and several workshops in conjunction with INFOCOM and ICDCS and as a guest editor of JSAC.
