Zheng Yang is an associate professor in School of Software and TNList,
Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. He received his B.E. degree in the
Department of Computer Science from Tsinghua University, and his Ph.D. degree in
the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Hong Kong University of
Science and Technology.
His research interests include wireless
networking, mobile computing, pervasive computing, sensor networks. He
is an author and co-author of over 60 research papers in premier
journals and conferences. He also serves as a technical program
committee member of INFOCOM, MobiHoc, ICDCS, and an
editor of several journals including IEEE Transactions on Vehicular
Technology (TVT) and AHSWN.
Ongoing projects include
(wireless and sensorless sensing).
I am looking for post-doc fellow and self-motivated students to work on
research projects in wireless networking and mobile computing. Read my "Notes
