About

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Harvard University in 2009. I did research as a PhD student at Harvard Sensor Networks Laboratory, and as a postdoctoral fellow at Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Self-organizing Systems Research Group. My research areas span across wireless networks and cyber-physical systems. Specifically, I have worked on active soft orthotics, wearable sensor systems for motion analysis, wireless senosr networks for emergency medical triaging, and self-organized routing for resource constrainted wireless sensor networks.
