Short Bio

I am currently an assistant professor in Computer Science Department, at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. I graduated with a Ph.D. degree from Computer Science and Engineering Department, at State University of New York at Buffalo, in June 2011. I received my M.S. degree and B.S. degree both in Computer Science and Engineering from Harbin Institute of Technology, China, in 2006 and 2004 respectively. From August 2011 to June 2014 I worked as an assistant professor in Computer Science Department, Oklahoma State University.

Research Area

My current research interests include economic incentives in wireless networks, data privacy, health informatics and cyber-security. My current research has been supported by California State Polytechnic University, Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology, Amazon Inc, and Oklahoma State University.

 I am looking for self-motivated graduate and undergraduate students to work with me in the above areas. Please send me your resume and transcripts if interested.
