SIMPLY attaching a CV or sending an email even without a CV will be treated as a SPAM. Please DO NOT FEEL OFFENDED if I might not reply to you.



I am looking for self-motivated Ph.D candidates in mobile networking and system areas. Candidates are expected to have a solid background in networking and a strong motivation towards academic excellence. Experience and knowledge in the following categories is a big plus:
  • Deep understanding of cellular networks architecture (4G LTE, 3G UMTS), including radio access technology, core procedures in 3GPP standards.
  • Design/implementation of mobile (android) applications, sensing, soft defined radio and wireless network analysis.
  • Knowledge on PHY/MAC techniques in LTE, WiFi, WiMax, etc.
  • Knowledge on security (system and crypto) and privacy in practice (social networking, mobile systems).


      If you want to learn my research topics and styles, please refer to http://mssn.cse.ohio-state.edu/pub.html.

      If you are interested in working with me, you are welcome to email me your resume. It is helpful to highlight your major experience, as well as keywords of tools/software/OS systems you are familiar with, such as Linux, python, java, tcpdump (wireshark), ns3, GNURadio, Linux wireless driver, and so on. But due to a large volume of inquiries, please DO NOT FEEL OFFENDED if I might not reply to you in time.

      Any questions regarding applications in MS or PhD programs at the Department of Computer Sciences and Engineering at the Ohio State University, please refer to http://www.cse.ohio-state.edu/grad/admissions.shtml. If you are interested in working with me, please feel free to indicate it in your application.

      Last but not least, final admission decision will be made by the graduate admission committee, instead of individual faculty members. Thank you and best wishes!
