I try my best to keep this page up to date with the latest opportunities in my lab, but occasionally may miss something. If you're interested in my team's research, please feel free to contact me even if you don't see what you're looking for on this page.

Postdoctoral Fellows

1. Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship is Canada's most prestigious postdoctoral award. If you are interested in applying for this fellowship and working with me, please reach out to me well in advance of the UBC internal application deadline of July 15, 2024.

Prospective and Visiting Students

1. Prospective Graduate Students

I intend to hire a few PhD students to join my group at UBC (start date September, 2024). Exceptional Master's applicants will also be considered. If you are interested in my research area, feel free to reach out. More information on applying to the ECE Department at UBC can be found on the ECE admissions page and on the UBC Grad School admissions page.

2. Visiting International Research Students

Talented students from outside Canada who are interested in conducting cutting-edge cloud computing research can join my lab as a visiting international research student. Before reaching out to me to discuss such a possibility, please check the UBC VIRS page to ensure that you are eligible.

UBC Students (currently enrolled)

1. UBC Undergraduate Students

I welcome undergraduate students who are interested in research to join my group in various capacities. If you are passionate about projects in the cloud computing area and would like to get involved, feel free to shoot me an email with your CV and transcript. If your qualifications match our current needs, I will get back to arrange a chat to discuss potential opportunities.
These are the standard opportunities that always exist:
a. NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA): These are paid full-time research positions for Summer of 2024, available to Canadian citizens and permanent residents. You apply for this award together with an eligible supervisor. I have a few projects. Reach out to me if interested.
b. CPEN/ELEC 497: Undergraduate Research Experience Program (UREP) (Note: The ECE Department provides tuition coverage of 1 credit of domestic tuition for this course.)
c. CPEN/ELEC 499: Undergraduate Thesis
Beyond these, depending on the time of the year there are additional opportunities available for your involvement in USRA, Capstone project, etc. I will do my best to keep this page updated, but feel free to reach out to me regardless.

2. UBC ECE MEng Students

If you are interested in my area of research or have cloud-related projects in mind, feel free to reach out to me. You can do an EECE 597 project with me. Specifically, I have two open projects for MEng students to join.

3. Thesis-Based Graduate Students at UBC

Feel free to knock on my door (physically, or virtually through an email) to brainstorm ideas. Our team is always open to collaborations. Additionally, co-supervision may be possible even if your home department is not ECE.
