I am an Associate Professor working with Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).  Before joining VCU, I was a  Research Assistant Professor with Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Syracuse University (SU). I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of Connecticut, in May 2001, M.S. from the Institute of Electronics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in July 1997, and B.S. from the Department of Information and Communication Engineering, Xi'an Jiaotong University in July 1994. I received the Best Paper Award, at the Seventh International Conference on Information Fusion in 2004. I am a coauthor of the paper that won the Best Student Paper Award at the Thirteenth International Conference on Information Fusion in 2010. I serve as an Associate Administrative Editor of the Journal of Advances in Information Fusion. I was an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing between 2012 and 2016. Between 2010 and 2012, I was an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks. I was the Secretary of the IEEE Richmond Section between 2014 and 2015.
