I will join the Department of Computer Science at The University of Iowa as a tenure-track Assistant Professor. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow working with Song Han at the School of Computing at the University of Connecticut. Before that, I worked with Nan Guan as a postdoc at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. I obtained my Ph.D. from Northeastern University, China, and was supervised by X. Sharon Hu during my visit to Notre Dame.

My research interest centers around real-time cyber-physical systems subject to stringent timing and reliability requirements. Examples of applications include industrial internet-of-things (IIoT), autonomous vehicles, avionics, etc. My current research focuses mainly on the resource management and scheduling framework design/analysis/implementation for emerging IIoT systems, including industrial 5G, time-sensitive networking (TSN), and wireless sensor-actuator networks (WSANs). My general research goal is to make real-time cyber-physical systems deterministic, reliable, and secure

[Openings] I am looking for 1-2 Ph.D. students to work on real-time cyber-physical systems. If you are interested in working with me, please feel free to drop me an email. Details can be found here
