Research

 

General research interests are the control techniques for networks and communication systems, including resource allocation, scheduling, multiple access, consensus, synchronization/desynchronization, information dissemination/dynamics, and self-organization/healing/resilience with facilitations of optimization, statistical mechanics, network theory, economics (including game theory and auction theory), information theory, and graph theory. Recently, focuses are particularly on

  • Configurable Networks (mobile edge cache, fog/edge network, mobile edge computing, cloud network, network slicing, open network stacks)

  • Cyber-physical systems (machine-type/machine-to-machine communications, smart grid networks, intelligent transportation network, robot/unmanned vehicular networks)

  • 5G/6G communication networks (New Radio Technologies, Licensed-Assisted Access, mmWave communications, non-orthogonal multiple access)

  • Machine learning on mobile networks (reinforcement learning on drone networks, SDN, RAN)


Awards


Honors

  • Three IEEE papers have been listed in ESI Highly Cited Paper (two in 2017, 2018, 2019 and one in 2019)
