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.
