My research interests include wireless sensor/ad-hoc/mesh networks, cyber-physical systems, green computing, distributed algorithms and protocols. My current research focuses on routing protocols and scheduling polices for reliable real-time industrial communication, high-accurate train localization using wireless sensor networks, and channel-aware data communication in body sensor networks.

I received BSc and MEng degrees from Shandong Normal University in China in 2002 and 2005, respectively. I obtained my PhD degree in computer science from The University of Adelaide in Australia in 2008. From September 2008 to October 2010, I worked as post-doc research associate in the Automatic Control group at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden.

Openings for PhD students: I am looking for self-motivated PhD students to work in the area of networking and wireless communication. Please read the details here, and then email me if you are interested in doing your PhD under my supervision.

For more information about my research, please see my research pages.
