About me



I am a postdoc with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, MIT, hosted by Prof. Devavrat Shah

I was a research fellow in the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing, participating in the program on Algorithm and Uncertainty in Fall 2016. I completed my PhD at University of Illinois Urbana Champaign in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2016 under the supervision of Yi Lu. I received my M.S. degree in 2012 from ECE of UIUC. I obtained my B.E. degree with honors from the Department of Electronic Engineering at Tsinghua University in 2010.

My research has been recognized by the UIUC Coordinated Science Lab PhD Thesis Award and the IFIP Performance Conference Best Paper Award.

Research interests


I am broadly interested in the performance modeling, analysis, and design of networked systems. The focus of my recent work includes scheduling and resource allocation for data centers, as well as learning-based networked systems. My research builds on and improves upon tools of stochastic processes, queueing and scheduling theory, applied probability, control and learning theory. I am also interested in algorithm implementation, with the aim of bridging the theory and practice in networked systems.
