"Talk is cheap. Show me the code. And the system."

I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Computing, University of Nebraska - Lincoln. I was a Member of Technical Staff at Nokia Bell Labs. I obtained my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, supervised by Prof. Tao Han in 2020. I received my M.S. in Communication and Information System at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in 2016. My research covers the broad field of Machine Learning, Wireless Communication, Computer Networking, and Edge Computing, with special interests in Network Slicing, Digital Twin, IoT, Autonomous Driving, and DL/RL.

I am actively looking for high-motivated PhD students to join my team. Be free to send me an email with your CV and publications if available.
