I am a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the George Washington University, which I joined in 2010. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Princeton University in 2010, M.S. from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto in 2005, and B.A.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Tsinghua University in 2003.
My research focuses on machine learning, optimization, cyber security, and cloud/edge computing. The research projects have been supported by NSF, ONR, DARPA, ARO, USMA, CISCO, AT&T and Meta - Truly appreciate the support!
