I’m a PhD student in Computer Science at the Networks and Mobile Systems Group (NMS) of MIT’s Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL). My research is focused on Computer Networks and Networked Systems. I’m advised by Prof. Hari Balakrishnan and Prof. Mohammad Alizadeh. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science at Peking University.
Technology fascinates me a lot, and I am most interested in networks, opensource and electronics. I also enjoy hiking, cycling and travelling. Plus, I am a licensed amateur radio operator. My callsign is BH1UNB. Check out my profile in the QRZ.com database.
Our paper Practical Backscatter Communication Systems for Battery-Free Internet of Things: A Tutorial and Survey of Recent Research (authors: Chenren Xu, Lei Yang, Pengyu Zhang) is published on IEEE Signal Processing Magazine as a featured article.
