I am a professor of Department of Computer Science at William & Mary, and served as the graduate director of the department in 2010-2011. I got my PhD from Dartmouth College  under the supervision of Daniela Rus.

My research focuses on edge computing, operating systems, distributed systems, cyber-physical systems, deep learning, security & privacy. It involves building and simulating prototype systems, and conducting real experiments and measurements. Check out our recent papers here.

I am currently working with brilliant PhD students Lele Ma, Zeyi Tao, Qi Xia, and Jindi Wu. I am interested in motivated students who would like to work on operating systems, security and privacy, deep learning in the context of edge computing systems. Recently PhD graduated: Zhengrui Qin, Ed Novak, Nancy Carter, Shanhe Yi, Yutao Tang, Zijiang Hao, Cheng Li.

I am the recipient of a NSF Career Award and an IEEE Fellow. 

I am the Founder and Director of the Edge Computing Laboratory. My publications include more than 100 international journal articles, book chapters,  conference/workshop papers, and technical reports. Many of them are published in prestigious conferences and journals ( ACM CCS’18, ICSE'16, Ubicomp'15, NSDI'13, Mobisys'13, Mobisys'12, Ubicomp'13, Pervasive'08, Mobicom'03, Mobicom'01, Mobicom'00, and Infocom'16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 09, 08, 06, 04). I am the general chair of ACM/IEEE Symposium of Edge Computing (SEC'22) and was the program co-chair of ACM/IEEE Symposium on Edge Computing (SEC'19). I was the chair for many other conferences including area chair for IEEE Infocom and track chair for IEEE ICDCS. I was the streering comittee chair of IEEE Transactions on Multi-Scale Computing Systems. I also served as TPC member for numerous conferences and workshops and was an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications. Currently I am on the editorial board of IEEE Internet Computing and IEEE Transactions on Computers.
