I am a Ph.D.student in Electrical Engineering Department at Columbia University, and I work at the Wim.Net Lab with Professor Gil Zussman. My research interests are in PHY/MAC layer algorithms, optimization, and system implementation in Internet-of-Things (IoT), energy harvesting networksfull-duplex wireless, massive antenna systems, optical-wireless networks, and mmWave and 5G networks.

I graduated with a B.Eng. degree in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, in July 2014, and received an M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University, in Oct. 2015. I received the Wei Family Private Foundation (WFPF) Fellowship, the Columbia University Electrical Engineering Armstrong Memorial Award and Millman Teaching Assistant Award, the Columbia Engineering Oscar and Verna Byron Fellowship. I also received the ACM CoNEXT 2016 Best Paper Award.
