I am a Lead Researcher in the Mobile and Sensing Systems group at Microsoft Research Asia. Before joining Microsoft I received my Ph.D. at Dartmouth College where I was co-advised by Andrew T. Campbell and Tanzeem Choudhury.

My research interests revolve around people-centric sensing applications and systems. I am an experimentalist who likes to build prototype mobile sensing systems based on well-founded computational models.
