I am now at Huawei Technologies, leading technical innovation and software development for Huawei cloud networks, including public cloud, private cloud, and network function cloudification. Before joining Huawei, I was Senior Researcher/Research Manager at Microsoft Research Asia, where I am leading the Wireless and Networking Group for fundamental networking research and developing key technologies, several of which have been successfully transferred in Microsoft’s products and services.
