I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the computer systems group in the Department of Computer Science at VU Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I am also affiliated with the Department of Computer Science at TU Darmstadt, Germany. I am interested in networked systems, where I design and optimize networks and computer systems for supporting emerging (mobile) applications. Specific topics include: video stream analytics, microservice provisioning, edge computing, and in-network computing. Please check the publication page for my recent work.
Openings: I am looking for motivated students to work on practical projects related to networked systems implementation and performance measurement. Please drop me an email if you are interested.

I am principal investigator of the following projects. I feel grateful to the funding agencies for their generous support on my research.
SmartEdge: Concepts and methods for edge computing: a modern edge computing software architecture design and resource management for supporting emerging mobile applications. Funded by DFG (German Research Foundation) through the joint DFG-NSFC collaborative program.
Microservice autoscaling and caching for edge computing: mechanisms for addressing the adaptivity of computing systems from a service-centric view. Funded by the DFG through the Collaborative Research Center MAKI.
I am fortunate to work with the following smart students.
I have been teaching the following courses.
I regularly serve on the TPC of the conferences of my research field.
During Jul 2016 - Nov 2018, I worked as an Athene Young Investigator at TU Darmstadt. Before that, I had a brief stay as 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 was a visting researcher at IMDEA Networks Institute, Spain.
