My research interests centre mainly around the optimisation of network architecture and protocols to improve the network performance.

My current research focuses on

  • wireless networks (5G/6G, UAV networks, industrial wireless networks, body sensor networks, vehicular networks),
  • distributed edge intelligence (distributed learning, federated learning, imbalanced learning),
  • machine learning acceleration (network-on-chips, photonic computing and communication),
  • mobile security (malware detection, network behaviour analysis).

  • I am looking for self-motivated PhD students in wireless networking, 5G/6G networks, distributed learning, mobile security and wireless positioning. Please read the details HERE before contacting me.
  • Paper accepted by IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications - Waqas Ahmad, Haibo Zhang, Yawen Chen and Naveed Iqbal, Low RF-complexity Digital Transmit Beamforming for Large-scale Millimeter Wave MIMO Systems.
  • Paper accepted by PAKDD2022 - Ying Pang, Haibo Zhang, Jeremiah D. Deng, Lizhi Peng and Fei Teng, Rule-Based Collaborative Learning with Heterogeneous Local Learning Models, [acceptance rate: 19.3%]
