I joined the Department of Computer Science at Georgia State University as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2017. More details can be found in my new webpage. I am looking for multiple graduate students to join my group. (Click here for more details)

I completed my PhD degree in Computer Science and Engineering at State University of New York at Buffalo in June 2017. My advisor is Dr. Chang Wen Chen. I was a visiting researcher at Stanford University, working with Dr. Bernd Girod in Summer 2016. I interned at Huawei US R&D centre, Santa Clara, CA, in Summer 2014 and 2015, working with Dr. Xin Wang, Dr. Cedric Westphal and Dr. Miao Zhao.

My research interest lies in the intersection of computer systems and artificial intelligence. My research strives to design human-centered and human-intelligent mobile systems using machine learning, networking, and multimedia technology. My research goal is to advance human capabilities and experience in working, learning, living and communicating. My current research is focused on mobile visual computing systems, e.g., mobile virtual reality, mobile computer vision, and mobile content delivery, as well as Internet of Things, e.g., in-home sleep monitoring and crowd sensing.
