I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Dartmouth College. I am a member of the DartNets (Dartmouth Networking and Ubiquitous Systems) Lab, under the supervision of Prof. Xia Zhou. I received my B.S. in Computer Science and B.A. (minor) in Economics from Peking University in July, 2013. I was a research intern at Bell Labs Cambridge from May to August 2017. I was a visiting researcher in the University of Cambridge from October to December 2016 and a research exchange undergraduate in UCLA from September to December 2012.
My research interest focuses on mobile systems and wireless networking. I have been tackling physical-layer and networking challenges of Visible Light Communication (VLC), aiming to broaden the application scenario of VLC and push VLC closer to the practice. I have also examined the application of light sensing and its fusion with other sensing modalities. I worked on Wi-Fi sensing during my intership at Bell Labs. Before joining DartNets, I was an undergraduate research assistant at the Center for Energy-efficient Computing and Applications (CECA), Peking University and conducted research on FPGA and Software Defined Radio (SDR) system.
