Prof. Daniela Tuninetti from UIC, Prof. Hua Sun from UNT and myself will deliver the tutorial on “Distributed Function Retrieval: a Storage and Privacy Prospective” at the upcoming 2021 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT 2021), to be held (virtually) in Melbourne Australia in July 2021. The tutorial is tentatively scheduled for July 17th 2021.


I am actively looking for motivated graduate and undergraduate students ( for both Fall and Spring semesters from ECE and CS ) working on wireless distributed edge/fog computing, machine learning, wireless caching networks, stochastic network optimizations. If you are interested, please send me an e-mail with your current CV or drop by my office. I will be happy to discuss. Please check samples of our research talks at Youtube.

Short Bio and Research Interests

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Utah since Fall 2016. I received my PhD in 2015 at Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering, Viterbi School of Engineering, University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles, USA. I received my MS degrees in Electrical Engineering (focusing on wireless networks) from University of California, Santa Cruz and in Electrical Engineering (focusing on information and signal processing) at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, and obtained my Bachelor Degree in Communication Engineering at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT), Beijing, China. Previously, I was a Staff II System Design Scientist at Broadcom Limited, San Diego.

My research interests lie in the fascinating intersection of distributed computing and storage, communication, machine learning and information theory.

I am the director of Computing, Caching and Communication (C^3) group.
