I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Binghamton University. My research areas include Internet mobile streaming, multimedia computing, Internet measurement and content delivery, and cloud computing. My recent research has mainly focused on uncovering power inefficiencies in mobile and distributed systems, with an aim to reduce the power consumption on mobile devices and improve the power-efficiency of today's distributed systems by combining large-scale measurements with big-data analysis.

I am looking for motivated PhD students. If your research interests are aligned with mine, please feel free to send me your CV.
