About Me

I am a 4th-year Ph.D. student in Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. I work with Prof. Kai Chen in System networkING (SING) research group. Before that, I received my M.S. in HUST in 2013, where I worked with Prof. Hongbo Jiang. I am a Google PHD Fellow in 2016.

I am lucky to work closely with my supervisors and some outstanding collaborators: Prof. Mosharaf Chowdhury (UMich, Ann Arbor), Prof. Dongsu Han (KAIST) and Prof. Chen Tian (NJU).
