I am a researcher in Wireless and Networking Group. In the past, I have been working in various areas in networking field, including multimedia transmissions, transport protocol, routing, and data center networks. I am now leading networking and wireless research in WN group. Previously, I designed the Compound TCP protocol, which is in latest Windows Operating Systems. I also led the development of Sora, a high-speed software radio platform based on general purpose multi-core processor. I have broad interests in networking, data communication and wireless technologies. You can find a short bio of me here.
