I am a current PhD student from Department of Computer Science at University of California, Irvine in the Computer Networks track. My faculty advisor is Professor Nalini Venkatasubramanian, who leads the Distributed Systems Middleware (DSM) group.

My primary research interest is in Internet of Things (IoT), plus mobile sensing/computing/networking. Currently, I am continuing the work on the Safe Community Awareness and Alerting Network (SCALE) project that aims to leverage IoT devices to extend a safe home to everyone, including vulnerable populations, at a low incremental cost. Part of my work is to enable mobility support on SCLAE sensor nodes, so these nodes can be mounted on bikes, buses, or carried in backpacks, to serve as mobile data collectors and help improve the resilience of the smart community IoT deployment.
