About me


  • I am currently a second-year Ph.D. student in School of Computing and Information Science at Cornell University, advised by Prof. Cheng Zhang. My current research interests cover a wide range of ubiquitous computing, sensing systems, wearable devices, and HCI.

  • I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in School of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), P.R. China. In my sophomore year, I joined Advanced Network Laboratory as a research assistant, advised by Prof. Guihai Chen and Prof. Xiaofeng Gao. In the summer of my junior year, I went to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and became a summer intern under the guidance of Prof. Swarun Kumar. In my senior year, I joined Intelligent Internet of Things (IIOT) Research Center to complete my graduation thesis with the supervisor Prof. Xiaohua Tian.
