I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the High Performance Distributed Computing (HPDC) group, Computer Systems section, of the Computer Science department of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I am also affiliated as an Athene Young Investigator at the Department of Computer Science at TU Darmstadt. During Jul 2016 - Nov 2018, I headed the Smart Urban Networks group in the Telecooperation (TK) Lab at TU Darmstadt. Before that, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at SnT Luxembourg. I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science with distinction from the Institute of Computing Technology (ICT), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). During Sep 2012 - Jan 2014, I visited at IMDEA Networks Institute in Madrid. I am a member of IEEE and ACM.

“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.
