Biography

Liyang Zhang is a PhD student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University. Liyang received his M.S. in Electrical Engineering from State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY in 2014, and B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 2008. From 2008 to 2011 he was an engineer of Infinova Technology in Shenzhen, China. He was an intern at Huawei Research Center, Santa Clara, CA from Nov. 2016 to May. 2017. Currently he is working in the Wireless Networks and Embedded Systems Laboratory under Professor Tommaso Melodia.
