Zheng Dong


ABOUT ME

I am currently a Fourth year Ph.D. candidate under the supervision of Prof. Cong Liu, in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Dallas. Before joining UTDallas, I received my M.S. degree from University of Science and Technology of China in 2011 and B.S. degree from Wuhan University in 2008.

I am broadly interested in Real-time systems with a special focus on Real-time scheduling theory. I enjoy solving theoretical problems by building "equation systems". However, I am still not good at writing papers. I am lucky to work with my supervisor Prof. Cong Liu (he helps me write a bunch of exciting papers) and many outstanding collaborators: Dr. Yu (Jason) Gu (IBM Watson Health), Prof. Tian He (University of Minnesota), Dr. Alan Gatherer (Huawei American Wireless Lab) and Prof. Chau Yuen (Singapore University of Technology and Design) .
