I am currently a sixth-year Ph.D. Candidate supervised by Prof. Song Min Kim and Prof. Parth Pathak in Department of Computer Science (CS) at George Mason University (GMU). Before joining GMU, I was a Ph.D. student in Dept. Computer Science and Technology at Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) where I received my bachelor and master degree on July 2011 and 2013 respectively. I also worked with Prof. Tian He and Prof. Song Min Kim in University of Minnesota as a visiting Ph.D. student from Dec. 2015 to Dec. 2016. My research interests include wireless communication, cross-technology communication [Project Website], wireless networking and embedded system as well as Internet of Things. Here is my CV.

Released Tool

Our Cross-technology Channel Estimation tool is released at Github. This tool consists of two parts: (i), fragments injection, which injects the customized WiFi fragments with precise timing control. (ii), channel estimation, which estimates the cross-technology channel from the channel state information (CSI) collected from the injected fragments. Our implementation follows the design in X-MIMO and supports collecting the cross-technology channel information at a wireless router (TP-link WDR4300) or an Atheros WNIC as long as they support Atheros CSI Tool. To understand how our tool is operated, we provide two demos for wireless router users:

and WNIC users:
