About Me
I am currently a postdoctoral associate at the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech, working with Prof. Walid Saad. I obtained my PhD at Department of Electronic Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, in 2017. My PhD supervisor is Prof. Meixia Tao. I was also working closely with Prof. Ying Cui. Prior to SJTU, I obtained my B.E. degree in electronic engineering from South China University of TechnologyGuangzhou, China, in 2011.

My research interests include age of information (AoI) , content-centric wireless networks and wireless caching, stochastic network optimization, queueing systems, Markov decision processes (MDP) and the applications to communication networks, the Internet of things (IoT), and Machine learning.
A brief introduction to the research during my Phd can be found here.
