I am currently a Ph.D. student in the ECE Department at HKUST. Before joining HKUST, I received my B.Eng. degree from the Dept. of Information and Communication Engineering (first class honor), Xi’an Jiaotong University, Xi’an (the home of Terracotta Warriors and Horses), China, 2012. I am now with the research group of Computing, Communications and Energy System Optimization (C2E) in ECE department at HKUST leading by Prof. Danny H.K. Tsang. From Oct. 2015 to May 2016, I was a fellow in School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), Harvard University.


I am interested in system optimization, learning algorithms, and stochastic models. Current topics of interest include

  • Power and Energy Systems (e.g., energy storage, renewable energy integration, demand-side management).

  • Smart and Sustainable Cities (e.g., electrified transportation networks, energy-efficient buildings, intelligent transportation).

  • Networking and Distributed Computing (e.g., architecture and resource allocation for fog/edge computing systems).
