Asst Prof Zhao Jun

Biography
Jun Zhao is an Assistant Professor in the School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU). He received a PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Pittsburgh, PA, USA in May 2015, and a bachelor's degree in Information Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China in June 2010. One of his papers was a finalist for the best student paper award in IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT) 2014. His research interests include the following:
• Communications & Networks (intelligent surfaces, 6G, edge/fog computing, wireless, IoT, CPS, graphs)
• Security (blockchains, adversarial machine learning, differential privacy, applied cryptography)
• Artificial Intelligence, AI (adversarial machine learning, privacy-preserving machine/deep/federated learning)

Prospective PhD students, postdocs, and visiting students/researchers can email JunZhao@NTU.edu.sg or add Wechat request at http://www.ntu.edu.sg/home/junzhao/wechat.png

Applicants to PhD/master programs who are strong in mathematics even without much knowledge in computer science or electronic/electrical engineering are encouraged to contact Jun Zhao.
