I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, working with Prof. Ayfer Ozgur and Prof. Abbas El Gamal. Previously, I obtained my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo, with Prof. Liang-Liang Xie as my advisor.

My research interests are in the area of information theory, with an emphasis on its applications to communication networks and machine learning. In particular, my research aims to address the following two fundamental problems regarding information transmission and extraction that arise in the networked big data era: 1) how to efficiently operate a communication network, so as to provide the capacity needed for transporting big data; and 2) how to effectively extract useful information from big data, particularly in a distributed fashion across the network.

I am now on the job market. Please see my Cover Letter, CV, Research Statement, and Teaching Statement.
