Colloquium - Zheng

Advancing Network Science: A Graph Centric View
University of Houston

In recent years, the investigation of fundamental underlying principles of disparate networks has gained tremendous interest. In this talk, we present a graph centric view of network science. Results on characterization and design of networked systems will be presented in the context of two important instantiations of cyber physical systems, namely, structure health monitoring and medical-grade wireless networks. Other research projects and future research directions will be discussed.

Rong Zheng is an assistant professor of the Department of Computer Science, University of Houston since 2004; and is the founder of the wireless system research group. She received her PhD degree from Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May 2004 and earned her ME and BE in Electrical Engineering in May 1998 and June 1996 from Tsinghua University, People's Republic of China. Dr. Zheng received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2006. She is presently a member of IEEE Computer Society and ACM. Her research interests include modeling and design of wireless systems, network information theory, and distributed algorithms.
