Ph.D., Computer Science, George Washington University, 2016
Secure and privacy-aware computing, secure and truthful auctions in dynamic spectrum access, game theory, algorithm design and analysis, resource management in cognitive radio networks and WiFi-based wireless access networks
I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from The George Washington University in 2016, my M.S. degree in Computer Science & Technology from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2011, and my B.S. degree in Mathematics & Applied Mathematics from China Agricultural University in 2008.
My research mainly spans the areas of security and privacy for the Internet of Things and cyber-physical systems, secure and privacy-aware computing, big data, game theory, and algorithm design and analysis. I have obtained more than $1 million in grants from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and industry to support my research projects.
I have more than 45 publications, most of which were published in premier journals and conferences, including IEEE Internet of Things Journal, IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing (TMC), IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking (ToN), IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (JSAC), IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics (TII), IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications (TWC), IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS), ACM MobiHoc, IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE ICDM, and IEEE ICDCS.
