I have been with the Department of Electrical, Computer and Systems Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) as an assistant professor since Dec. 2012. Prior to joining RPI, I was a postdoc research scholar at Duke University with Prof. Robert Calderbank. I obtained my Ph.D. in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University under the supervision of Prof. A. Kevin Tang in August 2012. I received the B.E. degree (with honors) and the M.S. degree (with honors) in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University, China, in 2005 and 2007 respectively. My research areas involve networking and systems, signal processing, and optimization. Please see my CV if you want to know more about me.


    Postdoc/visitors: I am looking to host a postdoc and/or visitors with background in signal processing, optimization, power system monitoring, or related fields. Please contact me along with your CV if you are interested.
