Welcome to Fang's Homepage!

I graduated with my Ph.D. degree in the Department of Electrical Engineering at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in Dec. 2012. My advisor is Prof. Lei He. Before coming to UCLA, I studied computer science in Tsinghua University (Beijing, China), where I obtained my Master degrees in 2008. Further back in the day, I obtained my Bachelor degree from Computer Science Department at Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (Beijing, China) in 2005.
