I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong, and currently serving as the Associate Head (on curriculum & development matters) of the department. I received my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the University of Toronto, Canada, and both my M.Engr. and B.Engr. degrees from the Department of Computer Science and Technology in Tsinghua University, China.

Research Interest

My current research interests span cloud computing, distributed machine learning/big data analytics systems, and network function virtualization. My research features performance modeling and algorithm design for various network systems using optimization, algorithmic game theory, and machine learning methods. I also design and implement various systems using relevant methods. Please see my research projects and publications for more details.
