Research Interests

My current research interests include energy systems (e.g., smart power grids and energy-efficient data centers), intelligent transportation systems, distributed optimization, multimedia networking, wireless networking, delay-constrained network coding, and characterizing the benefit of data-driven prediction in algorithm/system design.

We have ongoing ITCSC Seminar and INC Seminar.


  • [16/10/2017] CUHK hosted a press conference introducing several research progress, including our CHASE work on energy generation scheduling in Microgrids; see the press release. The progresses also received a number of news coverage.

  • [2/10/2016] Our WISER work on indoor white space networking for enabling Super WiFi is covered in a technical article on Yahoo! News.

  • [30/09/2013] CUHK and Microsoft jointly issued a press release on our WISER work on indoor white space networking. WISER also received a number of news coverage.

  • I am constantly looking for motivated graduate students and postdocs who have solid mathematical skills and interests in optimization and control theories, algorithms, networks and distributed systems, network coding and security. Candidates with strong system building capability are also very welcome to apply. Please contact me with your CV if interested.
