Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, hosted by Prof. Vahid Tarokh. I obtained my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of California, San Diego in 2015, under the supervision of Prof. Young-Han Kim. I received my B.Sc. with highest distinction from the School of Telecommunication Engineering at Xidian University, Xi'an, China, in 2008.
