Currently I'm a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo.
Prior to that, I was a Research Associate at the University of Washington, Seattle and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Waterloo. I received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo in Aug. 2013 under supervision of Prof. Guang Gong.
