I am interested in self-motivated PhD and Master students, and visiting scholars who work in the area of wireless communication and networking, sensor network and ubiquitous computing, smartphone energy saving, and cyber-physical systems. Ideally you should be a master CS or ECE student in the area of wireless networking or sensor systems with either strong math or system implementation.
