Short Biography

I received my BEng degree from the Advanced Class in the Department of Electronics and Information Engineering at Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, in Aug. 2008, and my MSc degree under the co-supervision of Prof. Chintha Tellambura and Prof. Sergiy Vorobyov in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada, in July 2010, and my PhD degree under the supervision of Prof. Junshan Zhang in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA, in May 2015. From June 2015 to Dec. 2016, I was a postdoctoral researcher under the supervision of Prof. Ness Shroff in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA. From Jan. 2017, I have been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Auburn University, Auburn, AL, USA.
