Welcome to my website

I am an Associate Professor in the Computer and Information Sciences Department at Temple University. Before joining Temple, I was an Assistant Professor with Binghamton University. I earned my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Stevens Institute of Technology (under the supervision of Dr. Yingying Chen), and M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Rutgers University. My B.S. degree is earned from Tongji University in China.

I am looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students conducting Computer Systems Research, preferring areas of interest and expertise include Mobile Sensing and Healthcare, Internet of Things, Cyber Security and Privacy, Deep Learning, and Software and Hardware Co-Design.
