I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science working under the supervision of Dr. Qun Li. I received my bachelor degree from the Computer Science and Engineering Department at the Beihang University in 2004. I was a software engineer at Huawei Technologies before coming to W&M in 2008.


My research interests are in the areas of mobile systems, embedded systems, operating systems, and wireless networks. Within these areas, I am especially interested in problems related to energy efficiency, performance, security and privacy. My research work has been focusing on building and supporting energy-efficient, secure and privacy-preserving embedded systems in the context of mobile computing and wireless networks.
