Brief Biography

Dr. Wang received his Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2004. Then he got Ph.D. degree in wireless communications at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2008. From 2009 to 2012, he was a senior research engineer in Huawei Technologies, Co., Ltd. Since 2012, he has joined the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) as associate professor. 

Dr. Wang has research experience in both academia and industry. He has published over 30 papers in top-level IEEE journals and flagship international conferences, especially in the area of wireless radio resource optimization and interference management. Moreover, he also involved in the development of interference mitigation technology for 5G systems, and has contributed 20+ US patent application and 30+ Chinese patent application (20 of them have been granted).
