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 data science, network science and social networking. In the past, I also did research in communication networking, including spectrum trading, clock synchronization, capacity scaling and in-network computation.
