Assistant Professor

The Ohio State University


I am an assistant professor in the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering and in the Dept. of Biomedical Informatics at The Ohio State University since Fall 2012.

I completed my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Princeton University in 2012, where I was fortunate to work with Prof. Robert Calderbank. I received a M.A. in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 2009, and a B.Eng. in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2007. I interned at Mitsubishi Electric Research Lab at Cambridge, MA in Summer 2011, and at Qualcomm Inc. at San Diego, CA in Summer 2010. I was also a visiting scholar at Stanford University, Duke University and Colorado State University. Here is my CV.

I have an Erdos number of 3.

My research is motivated by the challenge of efficiently extracting information embedded in a large amount of data. I am interested in the mathematics of data representation that take advantage of structures and geometry to minimize complexity, both at the sensing stage and at the analysis stage.
