About Me

I joined HKUST in 2015 after receiving my Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto. Before that, I obtained the B.Eng. and M.Sc. degrees from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I am also affiliated with HKUST Big Data Institute.

My general research interests cover the broad area of distributed systems, with special emphasis on cloud computing, data analytics systems, and computer networks. I am particularly interested in identifying fundamental resource management and scheduling problems that widely exist in practical systems, and searching for solutions that are generally applicable and easily implementable. I am also interested in problems at the intersection of cloud computing and economics.

To Perspective Students, Postdocs, and Research Assistants

I am looking for highly motivated graduate students, postdocs, and/or research assistants (RAs) to work on measuring, analyzing, designing, and implementing large-scale networked systems, including data analytics frameworks, cloud datacenters, distributed storage systems, and wide-area networking. Students with strong hands-on system building skills and/or mathematical background are especially welcomed. Stipend is highly competitive and will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

If you are interested in working with me, please feel free to drop me an email along with your CV, transcripts, standard test reports (e.g., TOEFL, GRE, IELTS, etc.), and any other documents that you believe can well demonstrate your research capability and potential.


I enjoy swimming and playing basketball. I am also an NBA fan.
