I am now a second year PhD student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am now pursuing my PhD degree under the supervision of Professor K. J. Ray Liu. My current research interests lie in the social networks and network science. In the past, I also did research in optimization [J2, C2], statistical signal processing [J4] and probabilistic asymptotic analysis [J1, J3] of communication networks.
