Google Scholar Profile

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of University of Virginia. I got my B.S. and M.S. from Tsinghua University, and Ph.D. from UCLA. I received the NSF CAREER award in 2022.

My research interests span a number of interdisciplinary topics in machine learning, communications, and networking, with an emphasis on theoretical models, algorithms, and practical engineering applications. Some of my current research topics are:

  • Federated learning and distributed/decentralized learning

  • Multi-armed bandits and reinforcement learning

  • Wireless communications

Prospective Students: Working with talented graduate students has been one of the most pleasant experiences in my faculty career, and I am always looking for candidates with strong mathematical background and/or interest in practical systems. Feel free to contact me with your CV and transcripts.
