Address: Pohlweg 51, 33098 Paderborn, Germany

I am a Full Professor, leading the Computer Networks group at the Department of Computer Science at Paderborn University, Germany. Before that, I was a tenured Assistant Professor in the Computer Systems Group at the Department of Computer Science at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands from 2018 to 2023. I received my PhD in Computer Science from the Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015. I have held (visiting) positions at IMDEA Networks Institute in Spain, SnT in Luxembourg, and TU Darmstadt in Germany.

I research networked systems. I am interested in creating concepts and techniques that make networked systems more efficient, scalable, and sustainable—by developing better programming tools and middleware.

I am the recipient of a Google Research Scholar Award (2022), an Outstanding Paper Award at RTSS 2022, a Best Paper Award at IPCCC 2023, and an Athene Young Investigator Award of TU Darmstadt (2018). I am a Senior Member of IEEE.
