Ph.D. Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, University of California, Berkeley

B.E. Computer Science, Tsinghua University, Beijing Shi, China


Research Interests

My research interests include design automation of intelligent cyber-physical systems and Internet-of-Things applications, cyber-physical security, energy-efficient CPS, and system-on-chip design.

Recent work in my group has been focusing on system level synthesis, optimization and modeling methodologies for intelligent cyber-physical systems. We are particularly interested in addressing timing, heterogeneity, security and energy challenges in CPS design and operation.
