I am a postdoctoral Researcher at Advanced Digital Sciences Center (ADSC), a research center established by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC) in Singapore. I am also a research affiliate at the Coordinated Science Laboratory (CSL) at UIUC. 

I received my PhD (2016) degree from City University of Hong Kong and BE (2009)  degree from Sichuan University.

My research interests include security of cyber-physical systems, optimal power flow in power systems, wireless network coding, optimization and distributed algorithms.

I have been a Teaching Assistant at CityU for:

  • CS2115: Computer Organization, Fall 2015, Fall 2014, Spring 2013.
  • CS4284: Mobile Computing, Spring 2015, Spring 2014.
  • CS5284: Mobile Computing (postgraduate level), Spring 2014.
  • CS2311: Computer Programming, Fall 2012.
