Our weekly Network Science Seminar at ASU
[Opening for postdoctoral scholar on Information
Networks and Network Science]
Junshan Zhang received his Ph.D. degree from the School of ECE at Purdue University in 2000.
He joined the School of ECEE at Arizona State University in August 2000, where he has been Fulton Chair Professor
since 2015. His research interests fall in the general field of information networks and data science,
including communication networks, Internet of Things (IoT), Fog Computing, social networks,
smart grid. His current research focuses on fundamental problems in information networks and data science,
including Fog Computing and its applications in IoT and 5G, IoT data privacy/security,
optimization/control of mobile social networks, cognitive radio networks, stochastic modeling and optimization for smart grid.
Prof. Zhang is a Fellow of the IEEE, and a recipient of the ONR Young Investigator Award in 2005 and the NSF CAREER
award in 2003. He received the IEEE Wireless Communication Technical Committee Recognition Award in 2016.
His papers have won a few awards, including the Kenneth C. Sevcik Outstanding Student Paper Award of ACM
SIGMETRICS/IFIP Performance 2016, the Best Paper Runner-up Award of IEEE INFOCOM 2009 and IEEE INFOCOM 2014,
and the Best Paper Award at IEEE ICC 2008 and ICC 2017. Building on his research findings,
he co-founded Smartiply Inc in 2015, a Fog Computing startup company delivering boosted network connectivity
and embedded artificial intelligence.
Prof. Zhang was TPC co-chair for a number of major conferences in communication networks,
including IEEE INFOCOM 2012 and ACM MOBIHOC 2015. He was the general chair for ACM/IEEE SEC 2017,
WiOPT 2016, and IEEE Communication Theory Workshop 2007. He was a Distinguished Lecturer of the
IEEE Communications Society. He was an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications,
an editor for the Computer Network journal, and an editor IEEE Wireless Communication Magazine.
He is currently serving as an editor-at-large for IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking and an editor for IEEE Network Magazine.
