Short Biography

In 2009, I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and B.S. and M.S. degrees from National Taiwan University, Taiwan, in 2000 and 2002, respectively. I have been working in Multimedia Communication and System Lab at UCLA for almost four years under the guidance of Prof. Mihaela van der Schaar. My Ph.D. dissertation is about designing autonomic transmission strategies for network nodes to dynamically forecast the network dynamics using priority queuing and multi-agent learning techniques and optimally transmit delay-sensitive applications over multi-hop networks. I believe that this work can be potentially applied to general distributed systems with various information and delay constraints of the applications. I interned at Intel Corp., Folsom CA in summer 2006 on video streaming over WLAN deployment and have been selected as one of the 8 Ph.D. students for 2007 Watson Emerging Leaders in Multimedia Workshop organized by IBM Research.
