About Me

I am now pursuing PhD degree under the supervision of Prof. K. J. Ray Liu in the Signals and Information Group of University of Maryland, College Park. I got my Bachelor degree in 2006 and Master degree in 2009, both from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. My research interests include wireless communications and networking.
