I am an Associate Professor of Department of Computer Science and Technology at Nanjing University, and also a member of the State Key Laboratory for Novel Software Technology. I received my BS and PhD degrees in computer science from Nanjing University in 2008 and 2014, respectively (advisor: Prof. Sanglu Lu). From Oct. of 2011 to Sep. of 2012, I was a visiting research scholar in Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Temple University, supervised by Prof. Jie Wu.

To date, I have published more than 70 papers in related research fields, including those appeared in IEEE TMC, IEEE TC, IEEE TPDS, IEEE/ACM TON, ACM TOSN, CCF TON, ACM MobiHoc, IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE SECON, and IEEE ICDCS. I am the recipient of the Best Paper Runner-Up Award from IEEE MASS 2012.
