Bio

Dr. Hou received the B.S. in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University in 2004, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2008 and 2011, respectively.

In 2012, he joined the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Texas A&M University, where he is currently an assistant professor. His research interests include cloud computing, wireless networks, wireless sensor networks, and cyber-physical systems.

Dr. Hou received the Best Paper Award in ACM MobiHoc 2018, the Best Student Paper Award in WiOpt 2018, and the C.W. Gear Outstanding Graduate Student Award from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
