Department of Information Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Rm 705, Ho Sin Hang Engineering Building, CUHK.


I am a Research Assistant Professor at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), Department of Information Engineering. Before joining CUHK, I was a Research Fellow at School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University. I received my Ph.D. from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

My research includes Internet-of-Things sensing, resilient AIoT systems, and cyber-physical systems.

🎓 I am looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students, Postdocs, Research Assistants in general topics of AIoT. More details can be found at here.
