Background (more details here)
B.Sc. degree in applied mathematics from Peking University, China, 1980 - 1984
Intensive training in English/Mathematics, Nankai Institute of Mathematics, China, 1984 - 1985
I have taught a number of undergraduate and graduate courses, mostly in the areas of analog/digital communication, data structures in C, engineering optimization, information theory and coding. I have also taught a tutorial course on wireless data communication for industry.
My research interests lie in the union of large-scale optimization, information theory and coding, data communication and signal processing. I am a member of the Advanced Signal Processing for Communications group consisting of many active researchers/students/visitors. Click here to view a list of my current research topics/projects.
I am a member of IEEE, SIAM and MPS. Presently I am serving as an associate editor for Journal of Optimization Theory and Applications, SIAM Journal on Optimization, Mathematics of Computation, Mathematics of Operations Research, IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, and Optimization and Engineering.
My research has been funded by various government agencies and industrial partners including NSERC, CITO, CFI, ORDCF, DREO, DREV, Canada Research Chair program and Nortel Networks. I also have international collaborative funding from Japan.
