I started at UCI in October 2012. I was very much impressed by the quality of our undergraduate students from my very first undergraduate class, where I was teaching them parallel computer systems. They approached me very naturally as I was telling them what do I do in my research besides teaching this course. Since that time I have been recruiting undergraduate students in my lab. I want to give full credit to our undergraduate students who showed an interest in working with me and started producing amazing results in my lab. I must say our undergraduate students are always encouraging me to work with them all the time and as a professor this is a huge privilege for me to encourage them towards their passion. My research produces many small scale research prototypes for demonstration purposes (e.g., autonomous vehicles, smart house). I typically involve undergraduate students in developing these prototypes (they include embedded systems software, hardware, communication, and control) while also involving them in research discussions with the rest of my group.
