I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. I received a PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Ohio State University in 2017, and a B.E. degree in Electrical Engineering from Zhejiang University in 2012. I was a postdoctoral researcher at University of California, Berkeley between 2017-2019, working with Prof. Kameshwar Poolla and Prof. Pravin Varaiya. I received the 2020 O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award from the American Automatic Control Council, the Best Student Paper Award at 2020 IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems, and the Best Student Paper Award Finalist at 2018 European Control Conference.
