Biography

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 PosX (indoor localization) and WiFi-Radar (wireless and sensorless sensing).
