I'm now maintaining a new personal website with more research details. Please find it here.


I'm now a postdoctoral fellow in the Whiting School of Engineering (ME & ECE), Johns Hopkins University, working with Prof. Dennice Gayme and Prof. Enrique Mallada. I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Zhejiang University, working in the group of Networked Sensing and Control (NeSC) in Control Department, co-advised by Prof. Youxian Sun, Prof. Zaiyue Yang and Prof. Steven H. Low. I received my B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering and Chu Kochen Honors Program for Science and Engineering, also from Zhejiang University.
