I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate at Yale University working with Professors Leandros Tassiulas and Lin Zhong. I am also an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer at Duke University. My research interests are in the areas of future wireless networks and systems, including the Internet-of-Things (IoT), energy harvesting networks, full-duplex wireless, massive antenna systems, millimeter-wave networks, and optical-wireless networks and edge cloud. In particular, my research focuses on emerging communication technologies and their interactions with the higher layers (e.g., the medium access control layer and application layer), as well as their performance evaluation using custom-designed prototypes and testbeds.
I received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University in 2020, where I worked at the Wim.Net Lab with Professor Gil Zussman. I graduated with a B.Eng. degree in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, China, in 2014, and received an M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University in 2015. I am the student co-lead of the Columbia FlexICoN project and am highly involved in the design and deployment of the NSF PAWR COSMOS testbed. I was also involved in the Columbia EnHANTs project.
