Biography

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the College of Computer Science and Software Engineering of Shenzhen University, since September 2017. I obtained my Ph.D in February 2017 in the CSE Department of HKUST, under the supervision of Professor Lionel M. Ni. Prior to this, I received my B.E in School of Chemical Engineering and Technology, Xi'an Jiaotong University in July 2013.

Research Interests

My research interest covers Wearable and Mobile Computing, Human-computer Interaction and Ubiquitous computing. My vision is to develop new technologies, algorithms, and systems that enable smart sensing, provide intelligent services, and deliver novel applications. I draw on novel sensing & computing technologies with embedded system design, machine learning models, signal processing algorithms, and mathematical methods to solve real-world problems.
