I am currently a Postdoc at the Dept. of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Toronto, hosted by Prof. Alberto Leon-Garcia. Prior to my current position, I received my Ph.D. in Electronic and Computer Engineering from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, advised by Prof. Danny H.K. Tsang. From Oct. 2015 to April 2016, I was also affiliated with the School of Engineering and Applied Science, Harvard University, hosted by Prof. Na Li.

Research Interests

I'm interested in the algorithmic and economic aspects of computing, networking, and energy systems. Current topics of interest include

  • online algorithms, algorithmic mechanism design, network optimization.

  • cloud and edge/fog computing, wireless networking, smart grid/smart cities.
