I am a software engineer at Google network infrastructure team. My research interests include mobile computing, wireless networks, and data center networks. I received my Ph.D. degree from the Deparment of Computer Science and Engineering, The Pennsylvania State University. I was with the Mobile Computing and Networking Lab, advised by Dr. Guohong Cao. I received my B.E. degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I was advised by Dr. Xinbing Wang on the research of wireless sensor networks throughout the senior year.

Studied photo/video crowdsourcing from mobile devices in wireless networks. Proposed to use embedded position and motion sensors to analyze photos/videos crowdsourced from mobile devices. The proposed methods increase the scalability of existing content-based crowdsourcing systems by multiple orders of magnitude. Implemented the proposed algorithms and systems on Android and Linux platforms. Conducted real-world experiments and trace-driven simulations to evaluate the performance.
