Fanxin Kong



I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Computer & Information ScienceUniversity of Pennsylvania, working with Prof. Insup Lee. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at McGill University and my advisor was Prof. Xue LiuMy research studies security, sustainability and timing aspects for computer networks and computer systems. My research interests span the areas of cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things, cloud computing and edge computing, and smart grid and energy systems. I develop and apply techniques from game theory, distributed computing, machine learning, data analysis, deterministic and stochastic optimization, and approximate and online algorithm design for these areas.
