About me

I received the B.E. degree in Electronics and Information Engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) in 2013, and the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from The University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 2017, under the supervision of Prof. Chuan Wu and Prof. Francis C.M. Lau. I was a Postdoctoral researcher during 2017-2020 in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), advised by Prof. Carlee Joe-Wong. In October of 2020, I joined the School of Computer and Eletrical Engineering at Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU), as an Associate Professor (my official homepage at SYSU).
