About Me

I joined the University of Michigan –Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute at Shanghai Jiao Tong University as a tenure-track assistant professor since May 2020. I am also affiliated with the Department of Electronic Engineering at SJTU. Before that, I received my Ph.D. degree in Computing Science from Simon Fraser University in 2020, supervised by Prof. Jiangchuan Liu.  I received my M.Phil degree from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2015, supervised by Prof. Bo Li, and my B.Eng. degree from Xi’an Jiaotong University in 2012.
