Biography

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Rutgers University under the guidance of Prof. Dario Pompili. I am a research assistant in the Cyber Physical Systems Laboratory (CPS Lab). I received the B.Eng. degree (honors program) from Hanoi University of Technology, Vietnam in 2011 and the M.Sc. degree from University of Akron, OH in 2013, all in Electrical & Computer Engineering. In summers 2015 and 2016, I was a research intern at Huawei Technologies US R&D Center, Bridgewater, NJ. My general research interests span the areas of wireless communications, mobile cloud computing, and software-defined networking (SDN). Currently I'm focusing on designing optimization algorithms for resource allocation, content caching, and computation offloading in Cloud Radio Access Networks (C-RANs) and Mobile-Edge Computing (MEC) systems.

Research

My current research areas include
  • Mobile-Edge Computing (MEC)
  • Wireless Edge Caching
  • Edge Computing for Smart Healthcare
  • Cloud Radio Access Networks (C-RAN)
  • Cooperative Communications
Past projects:
  • Optimal algorithms for power allocation and precoder design in relaying networks
  • Energy efficient routing algorithms for datacenter networks with SDN
