About me
I got my Bachelor degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). And after that, I started my graduate study in Electrical Engineering at Princeton University since 2010.
I grew up in Beijing, the capital city of China. Thanks to the liberal culture of my high school, Beijing No.4 High School, I decided to come to the United States for college. My undergraduate experience at CMU was amazing. I discovered my enthusiasm in engineering, mathematics and computer science.
Aside from the intensive but very interesting curriculum at CMU, I was given the opportunities to participate in several research projects with very cool professors and their graduate students since my junior year. The first project was under the supervision of Prof. Jim Bain and the second one was under the supervision of Prof. José Moura. From the projects, I found my interest and strength in theory and finally convinced myself to pursue a Ph.D. degree in information theory.
I started graduate school at Princeton in Fall 2010. Since then, I have been working on several research problems in source coding and information theoretic secrecy with my advisors Paul Cuff and Prof. Vincent Poor. Other than academics, one thing I really like about Princeton is the ice rink! I started figure skating in September 2012. This is something I wish I would have done in childhood but did not have the chance. But... it's never too late to start!
After I received my Ph.D in 2015, I worked at Amazon Audible as a software engineer to gain more experience in real-world appliations from 2015-2016.  While I have learned a lot in the software industry working with experienced software engineers on new technology at Amazon, I wanted to be challanged more intellectually. In 2016, I joined the Wireless Access Lab at Huawei research to start my new adventure in the wireless communication area.
