I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering (ESE) at the University of Pennsylvania. I am sponsored by Ufuk Topcu and George Pappas. I recently received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology in September, 2013. Prior to this, I received my B.E. and M.E. in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2003 and 2006.
My current research is focused on various engineering aspects of “smart cities”, including optimization and control of urban infrastructures such as power grids and transportation systems, and design of city-scale sensor networks for real-time response and planning.
