My research interests generally lie in the area of computer networks and distributed systems. I have done research in network validation and synthesis, cloud computing, SDN distributed controller design, etc. I am currently focusing on building a general framework for validating network designs.
Before coming to Purdue, I received my B.S. from School of EECS at Peking University in Beijing, China.
