My research interests and expertise include, but not limited to:
security and communications on smart grid; control, management and
services on SDN and IoTs; security, resource allocation and
optimization, mobility management in cognitive radio networks, wireless
multimedia sensor networks, and D2D communications; scheduling
optimization for wireless RF energy harvesting systems; protocol
design, performance evaluation and experimental implementation in above
communication and networking systems as well. My current research is
supported by National Science Foundation (NSF) grant and Air Force
grants. I have published over 40 technical papers in international
journals and conferences. Our papers received Best Paper Award in WASA
2009 and Chinacom 2016. In addition, I am serving as TPC members for
several international conferences and an active technical reviewer for
dozens of international journals and conferences.
I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer
Engineering Department, SDSMT. I received my Ph.D. degree from the
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Old Dominion
University, USA, in 2012. Before pursing my PhD degree, I worked as a
software engineer in an international telecommunication company. I
received my M.S. degree in Xi'an Jiaotong University (China) and B.S.
degree in Xi'an University of Architecture and Technology (China).
My teaching experiences are centered on digital system designs,
communications and networking, at both undergraduate and graduate
At SDSMT, I have taught EE320 Electronics I, CENG342 Digital Systems,
EE/CENG 421 Communication Systems, and ECE626 Wireless Communications
and will teach CENG 444 Computer Networks. I have a great passion in
education and am dedicated to excelling in teaching. I have been
actively seeking effective and novel strategies to improve
students’ learning experience, developing supplemental materials beyond
textbooks and designing real-world related projects and labs.
