Postdoc and GRA positions available (starting Spring or Fall 2022): I am looking for self-motivated Postdoc researchers and Ph.D. students with a strong theoretical background in networking, control, math, and machine learning, or with a strong systems background in cybersecurity, AR/VR, and wireless sensing. Please send me your CV, representative publications (if any), detailed transcripts with GPA and ranking, GRE/TOEFL scores, along with a brief introduction about yourself if you are interested in working with me. Master's and Undergraduate students at Virginia Tech are encouraged to discuss with me about potential research projects. I am also interested in hosting visiting scholars/students.
