I am Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the Department of Computer Science at the Loughborough University. Prior to joining Loughborough, I was lecturer in Department of Computer Science at the Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) during 2014-2017, and was SICSA funded Next Generation Internet Fellow based in ENDS research group at the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow from 2011-2014. I received my BEng, MPhil, and PhD degrees from City University of Hong Kong in 2005, 2007, and 2011 respectively.
I am currently researching in the areas of cloud computing, data centre networking, network policy/functions chaining as well as large scale distributed systems with focus on big data systems. My full list of research interests include: network measurement and optimisation, cloud data centre resource management, data centre networking, software defined networking (SDN), virtualisation, distributed systems as well as fog computing and smart cities.
My research has been mainly funded by The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Recently funded projects include:
- SYNC: Synergistic Network Policy Management for Cloud Data Centres, 4/2017-3/2018. http://www.sync-project.com
- Fruit: The Federated Raspberry Pi Micro-infrastructure Testbed, 1/2017-12/2018. https://fruit-testbed.org
I am accepting PhD student applications (including self-funded), please get in touch! I am also teaching at both undergraduate and postgradue levels in computer systems and networks.
