Prof. Hongwei Zhang at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
of Iowa State University (ISU) is looking for Ph.D. students to join his
research group in Summer/August 2019. Students will have opportunities to
participate in cutting-edge research in wireless network systems and their
applications in augmented reality (AR)/virtual reality (VR), connected and
automated vehicles, UAV swarms, smart agriculture, smart grid, Industry 4.0,
and IoT as well as cyber-physical-human systems in general. The research is
supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation and industry partners.
Iowa State University (ISU) is a leading research university, and the
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at ISU has over 100 years
of rich and distinguished history. (See https://web.iastate.edu/sites/
default/files/about/docs/facts/facts.pdf and http://www.ece.iastate.edu/the-department/history/) For instance, individuals from the department have pioneered the world's first electronic digital computer, encoding process for fax machines, world's first portable phone, medical ultrasound technology, first handheld scientific calculator, and infant respiratory augmentor. As a 220+ acre development and having over 70 tenants employing over 1,700 people, the ISU Research Park (http://www.isupark.org/) hosts a vibrant startup community as well as R&D branches of major companies such as John Deere. In addition, many other established and start-up companies (e.g., Collins Aerospace) are within 100 miles from ISU campus and are leaders in wireless communication and networking, AR/VR and control systems, and their applications in various domains. Being in one of the best college towns in USA which offers the convenience and energy of larger cities, students will also have a great life experience on campus in Ames, Iowa (http://www.thinkames.com; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ames,_Iowa).
Prof. Zhang’s research explores modeling, algorithmic, and systems issues
in wireless sensing and control networks as well as their applications in AR
/VR, smart agriculture, connected and automated vehicles, smart energy grid
, industrial IoT, and cyber-physical-human systems in general. Besides
publications, his work has provided foundational components for several
wireless network systems, including the emulation system and software-
defined innovation platforms for connected and automated vehicles, cellular
research networks, federated sensor networks, and DARPA sensor network
systems “A Line in the Sand” and “ExScal” (which, with its 200-node mesh
network and 1,200-node mote network, was the world's largest wireless
sensor network and mesh network deployed at its time). For more information
about Prof. Zhang’s research, please visit his website at http://www.ece.iastate.edu/~hongwei/.
By focusing on high-impact research and by collaborating with other research
groups in academia and industry labs, Prof. Zhang’s research group
provides students with access to world-class facilities, real-world
experience, and ample opportunities of contributing to the research and
engineering communities. Past Ph.D. students of the DNC group have become
thought leaders in their fields and have become founders/researchers/leading
-innovators at organizations such as ContentBox, GM Research, Ford Motor
Company, Marvell Semiconductor Inc., Juniper Networks, National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration, Yale University, and Texas A&M University.
Prospective students are expected to have strong academic background, are
self-motivated and goal-oriented, and can take initiative in executing
research visions. Experience in systems building, mathematical modeling, and
/or research will be a plus. Students will be supported financially in
various forms, such as Fellowship, Graduate Research Assistantship, or
Graduate Teaching Assistantship.
If you are interested in joining Prof. Zhang’s group, please contact him at
[email protected] and share with him your background (including, but not
limited to, resume and transcript), career plan, and expectations for Ph.D.
study. Prof. Zhang will call or email you if there is a good match between
you and his group.
