I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at NCTU, and leading the NEtworking and Mobile Systems (NEMS) laboratory (@ MIRC Building 704) in the department. I was awarded MTK Junior Chair Professor in 2016. I received a PhD degree in Computer Science from UCLA, where I was a member of the WiNG group led by Professor Songwu Lu, in 2015. Before that, I received an MS degree in Computer Science from NCTU in 2006, and two Bechelor's degrees in Computer Science and Management Science from NCTU in 2004. My research interests include wireless networking, mobile networks and systems, and network security.
