About Me

I am a postdoc with Coordinated Science Lab at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, hosted by Prof. Venugopal V. Veeravalli. I completed the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Syracuse University in May, 2016. I received the B. E. degree (with honers) from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2011. During the fall semester in 2015, I was a visiting student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 


Research Interests

Statistical signal processing, machine learning, stochastic control and information theory, with applications to data science, sensor networks, smart grids, cyber-physical systems and wireless communications.
