Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Michigan State University
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan State University (MSU). Before joining MSU, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Cornell University. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering and M.S. degrees in both Electrical Engineering and Computer Science all from University of Southern California (USC). I received my B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Peking University (PKU). My research spans the areas of ubiquitous computing, wearable and mobile sensing systems, and human-centered computing. I am particularly interested in developing human-centered sensing and computational technologies with a special focus on health care and well-being. This fits well with an emerging and interdisciplinary research field called Mobile Health (mHealth), which aims to revolutionize current health care system and realize the vision of patient-centric personalized health care.
