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 work on the algorithmic aspects of the interdisciplinary area between networking, energy and economics. Current topics of interest include

  • Theories: online algorithms, algorithmic mechanism design, and network optimization.

  • Applications: network resource allocation, cloud and edge/fog computing, power and energy systems.
