About me

I am a forth year Ph.D. candidate at Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in UC San Diego, advised by Professor Xinyu Zhang. My research interest lies in mobile computing and wireless networking.

I received my B.S degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2018, where I worked on Backscatter Communications with Professor Xiaohua Tian and Professor Xinbing Wang.
