I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering Department in the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo since 2013, where I direct the ESC (Embedded Sensing and Computing) Group. I received the Ph.D. degree from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2013. I got both M.S. degree in 2008 and B.S. degree in 2006 from Zhejiang University (both with honor), China.
Our group has focused on exploring novel Embedded Sensing and Computing technologies to build up new Internet of Things (IoT) systems for high-impact real-world applications in the fields of healthcare, security and manufacturing. Results has been published in peer-reviewed top research venues across multiple disciplines, including Computer Science conferences (e.g., ACM SenSys, MobiSys, UbiComp, MobiCom, ASPLOS, ISCA and CCS), Biomedical Engineering journals (e.g., IEEE TBME, TBioCAS, and JBHI), and Medicine journals (e.g., LANCET). My group won six best paper awards, one best paper nomination and two international best design awards. My inventions have been filed within U.S. and internationally as patents, and have been licensed to several industrial players. My research has been reported in various media outlets, including the Discovery Channel, Cable News Network, the Wall Street Journal, National Public Radio, Los Angeles Times, and the National Science Foundation's News.
Our group has been supported by National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institute of Health (NIH), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), SUNY RF, and University at Buffalo.
