About Me

I received my Ph.D. degree from the ECE Department, UofT. I am fortunate to have Prof. Baochun Li as my advisor. I received my B.Eng and M.Eng degrees both from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2012 and 2015, respectively. In 2021 Spring, I will join the CSE Division of Louisiana State University as an Assistant Professor. We have available Ph.D. positions. Join us at IntelliSys Lab!
