I am currently a second year Ph.D. student at Purdue University working with Professor. Sonia Fahmy. I obtained my M.S. degree from ECE Dept. of George Mason University under the supervision of Dr. Brian Mark on August, 2011. I received my B.E. degree from Dept. of Control Science & Engineering of Huazhong University of Science & Technology (HUST) on 2008.


I am widely interested in computer networking and performance optimization areas, including network congestion control, network measurement, data center networking, software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization.

I was involved in a number of projects such as the CHART project funded by DARPA, the PhishLive project funded by Google and the NFV-VITAL and ENVI project funded by Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Please check out my resume for more details about my research experience.
