Ruozhou Yu Email: ruozhouy [at] asu [dot] edu | CV: [PDF] (Last update: 06/2018)

I am a Ph.D candidate in Computer Science at Arizona State University, starting from 2013. I am also a Research Assistant in the Optimization and Network Research Lab (ONRL), advised by Dr. Guoliang Xue. My current research includes Blockchain, payment networks, Internet-of-Things, Edge/Cloud computing, Software-Defined Networking, network virtualization, traffic engineering, routing and resource optimization, etc.

Before joining ASU, I obtained my B.S. degree in Computer Science from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2013. I also worked as an Intern Research Assistant in Tsinghua University under the supervision of Dr. Dan Li for one year in 2012-2013.
