About Me


I'm a 4th-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan working under Professor Z. Morley Mao. Prior to this, I was an undergrad at Tsinghua University, during which I spent one semester as an exchange student at National University of Singapore.

My research interests are broadly in networking and mobile systems, with a current focus on live video streaming, multipath transport protocol design, and wearable computing. I discover real-world performance, deployment, and security problems of networked computer systems by developing measurement tools, and build practical systems to address the challenges of tackling them.
