About Me

I am a third-year Ph.D. student in University of California Santa Cruz, under the guidance of Prof. Chen Qian. My research works orbit around Computer networking and Blockchain. Before studying in the United States, I had been living in China and got my Bachelor degree in Computer Science and Technology from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC).

Research Projects

WebFlow: Scalable and Decentralized Routing for Payment Channel Networks with High Resource Utilization
2019 - 2020

Designed WebFlow, a new routing protocol for Payment Channel Networks(PCN) with low overhead and high resource utilization, along with an privacy-enhanced to hide the identities of source and destination of transactions.


Adaptive Backscatter Communication Against Intermittent WiFi Transmission
Jan. 2019 - July. 2019

Designed an adaptive Reed-Solomon coded backscatter system to protect the data transmission against the intermittent nature of the excitation signals in the ambient backscatter system to overcome low throughput in the backscatter communication system using WiFi signal due to the dynamic channel idle period.


Coded-Backscatter Multiple Access
May. 2018 - Jan. 2019

Proposed a coded-backscatter multiplexing access scheme for backscatter communications in order to meet the loose coupling and high capacity requirements to deploy the backscatter communication in dense and heterogeneous environments.


Measurement of the Spatio-Frequency Property of OFDM Backscattering
Feb. 2018 - May. 2018

Investigated the spatial-frequency property of the OFDM backscatter which takes the distance and the angle into account in different frequency bands.
