Research Interests

My research interests include information and coding theory, wireless communications and networking, cloud computing and big data, and very recently blockchain technology. In particular, I am interested in adapting new ideas and tools from information theory, coding theory, stochastic processes, and optimization to design better engineering systems. The primary goal of my research is to bridge the gap between theoretical advances and system implementations.

To Prospective Students

I am actively looking for talented students to work on research projects that break new ground in the fields of information and coding theory, wireless communications and networking, cloud computing and big data, as well as blockchain technology. Students with a strong mathematical bent and a passion for doing research are highly encouraged to apply via the UBC Graduate Studies Online Application.

If you are interested in joining our research group, please drop me an email along with your CV, transcripts, English test reports (e.g., TOEFL, IELTS, GRE), and any other documents that can demonstrate your research potential.

(April 2019) Multiple postdoc positions are available on blockchain technology with a particular focus on consensus algorithms and blockchain interoperability. Please drop me an email if you are interested.

(August 2019) Two postdoc positions have been filled. There might be more positions later.
