Welcome!

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 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. Current ongoing projects include Cellular/Wi-Fi IoT security, IMS security, ML-based adaptation for 802.11ac/ax networks, Wireless applications on UAVs, low-latency C-V2X warning delivery, MEC architecture and security, etc. Please download my CV here.

Awards

1. Best Paper Award in Telecom 2020
2. Best Paper Award in IEEE CNS 2018
3. 3-year MOST Grant for Excellent Young Scholar (2017)
4. MTK Junior Chair Professor (2016)

Recruiting

I am looking for self-motivated students (including undergraduate, master, and phd) who want to work on interesting problems in the areas of networking and mobile systems. My ongoing research projects include but not limited to protocol desgins for WiFi networks, security in wireless networking, mobile networks and systems, and network security. The potential students are expected to be willing to learn, to explore, and to code. If you are interested in working with me, please schedule a meeting with me via email.
