I obtained my PhD degree from Australian National University (ANU), and my PhD thesis is entitled “Cost-Aware Resource Allocation and Provisioning in Cloud Networks”. Before joining ANU, I received my Bachelor and Master degree from Dalian University of Technology in China in 2008 and 2011. I was a Research Associate at University College London (UCL) from 2016 to 2017.

My research interests include mobile edge computing, big data processing, network function virtualization, cloud computing, software-defined networking, machine learning, algorithmic game theory, and optimization problems.
