Welcome to my homepage! I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am now working with Prof. John S. Baras on wireless sensor networks and model-based systems engineering.

Before joining University of Maryland, I got my Bachelor of Engineering degree (honors) in 2006 from the Department of Computer Science and Technology at the Harbin Institute of Technology, China. In 2009, I got my Master of Philosophy degree from the
Department of Computer Science at the City University of Hong Kong, under the supervision of Prof. Xiaohua Jia.
