This is my personal blog of technical stuff. I have another blog in Chinese which is more laid-back. You are welcome to visit both (if you know Chinese), and let me know!
Currently I live in Long Island of New York. I had my undergrad BS degree in Automatic Control/Control Engineering, an MS degree of System Engineering from South China University of Technology, another MS degree of Civil Engineering from the University of Minnesota at Twin Cities, and a PhD in Traffic Engineering (with minors in Computer Engineering and Mathematics) from New York University.
My interests are at Traffic Simulation, Control, and Modelling. A experienced programmer I am pretty good at putting thoughts quickly into software. When free, I am a HAM radio operator and enjoy reading (SciFi, technical, novels, or Buddhism). I love court dramas such as The Practice, Boston Legal, Suits and witty shows such as Third Rock from the Sun. Old-school books are my favorites, including Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand , Animal Farm by George Orwell, and Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. I also enjoy classical Chinese literature and Buddhism Sutra for ancient wisdom.
My recent work focuses on R&D of a new adaptive signal control system, for which I have been running the work as System Architect, Key (a better word for “sole” or “lonely”) Programmer, and Project Manager doing full-cycle project management. I am a (maybe-self-claimed) expert in traffic signal control and relevant ITS standards, software design and agile development, real-time control systems, and ITS project management. I am also a (maybe-self-claimed) expert on traffic simulation modelling, especially sophisticated applications requiring customization of the simulation software, at source code API-level or no-source-code binary level.
Feel free to discuss with me any exciting or interesting new career/business opportunities, or just interesting thoughts you would like to share. I do enjoy speaking to smart people – that is the reason I keep murmuring to myself on a daily basis.
