About me
I joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Colorado, Denver as assistant professor in 2013, after receiving a Ph.D. degree from WINLAB/Department of Computer Science, Rutgers University.

I head the Mobile and Networked Systems(MNS) lab, where we work on various aspects of mobile systems and wireless networks including mobile healthcare, mobile communications, mobile context discovery, mobile-centric Internet architecture, and mobile system security and privacy.

Prospective Students: I am looking for a couple of motivated students interested in mobile systems and wireless networking research starting Fall 2015. Please email me with your CV and transcripts if you are interested.
