I am an Athene Young Investigator at the Department of Computer Science at TU Darmstadt. Since 2016, I head the Smart Urban Networks group at the Telecooperation Lab. Before joining TU Darmstadt, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at SnT Luxembourg. I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science with distinction from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS). During Sep 2012 - Jan 2014, I was a visiting researcher at IMDEA Networks Institute in Madrid. I am a member of IEEE and ACM. My Erdös number is 3 (Antonio Fernández AntaShmuel ZaksPaul Erdös).

“No problem is too small or too trivial if we can really do something about it.” – Richard P. Feynman

My research is focused on networked systems design and performance optimization for supporting emerging (mobile) appliations. Topics include edge computing, software-defined networking and network function virtualization, and energy-efficient algorithms.
