About

I received my Bachelor degree from both Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) in June 2012 and received my Master degree from BUPT in March 2015. My research area was in Heterogeneous Cellular Networks. Now, I’m a Ph.D. student advised by Dr. Alexandra Duel-Hallen. My current research interests are game-theoretic methods in smart-grid/microgird systems.

 

March, 27th, 2017: I passed my Qualifying exam. Here are my qualifying review report and slides.
