Biography

I am an Associate Researcher at the School of Computer Science and Technology, University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), and a member of the USTC-INT Group. I received my Ph.D. in the School of Computer Science and Technology, University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), supervised by Prof. Liusheng Huang and Prof. Hongli Xu. I was a visiting student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, State University of New York at Buffalo (UB), supervised by Prof. Chunming Qiao during Feb. 2019 - Apr. 2020, and received my Bachelor degree from >Shandong University (SDU) in 2015.

My research interests include cloud computing, software defined networking, network function virtualization and data center networks.
