I am a Full Professor of Computer Science at the Institute of Computer Science, University of Goettingen and leading the Computer Networks (NET) Research Group. I received my bachelor (1994) and master (with distinction, 1997) degrees from Northeastern University, Shenyang, China, and my Ph.D. (2000) degree in Computer Science from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China (supervisor: Professor Yaoxue Zhang). Prior to joining Goettingen, I worked with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Adam Wolisz as a member of scientific staff at the Telecommunications Networks (TKN) group, Technical University Berlin  until September 2002. Between 2003 and 2005 I also served in the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) as an Expert in Specialist Task Forces in Internet Protocol (Version 6) Testing. I was/am a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge (host: Prof. Jon Crowcroft) in 2005 and 2007, a DAAD visiting professor at Columbia University (host: Prof. Henning Schulzrinne) in 2008 and 2009, a Fulbright Scholar Visiting Professor at UCLA (hosts: Prof. Lixia Zhang and Prof. Mario Gerla) in academic year 2009/2010, and a ChangJiang Scholar Visiting Professor at Tsinghua University during 2010-2013. During 2010-2012 I served as Vice Chair of the Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC), IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), and during 2011-2013 as Chair of the Internet Technical Committee of the IEEE ComSoc and Internet Society (ISOC). I am an IEEE senior member and an IEEE distinguished lecturer, a member of ACM and a member of GI.

Research:

My research interests lie in the architecture and applications of Internet-based systems; an overview of my work so far in these areas is briefly described in my curriculum vitae or (out-of-date) research statement. I am currently involved in several collaborative research projects, addressing various aspects on the design, validation, implementation, simulation and analysis of new networked systems architectures, protocols, and online Internet services, especially signaling and QoS, transport protocols, network security and resilience, software defined networks, mobile and cloud computing, big data and social network analysis.


Projects:

My research team has been sponsored by European Commission, State Lower Saxony, Volkswagen, Siemens, Nokia Siemens Networks, German Telecom, ETSI, Panasonic, Huawei, as well as German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), US Department of State, and Chinese Scholarship Council (CSC). In addition, we work in close collaborations with many national and international institutions and industry partners.

Teaching:

As detailed in my teaching statement, I've been indeed enjoying a great deal of pleasure having the opportunity in delivery of my knowledge and experiences to the young elite, sharing their excitement and satisfaction in knowing what, how, why and more, as well as learning new things for myself. I am responsible for several courses in systems and networking area, may they be introductory, intermediate or advanced.

In most cases I am available in my office; to be sure please send me an email for making appointments with me. Also note the University of Goettingen's academic calendar (including ongoing and future semesters).
