Jinsong Zhang obtained his PhD degree in electrical engineering from University of Miami in 2003. From 2004 to 2008, he worked as a research scientist/research assistant professor at Florida International University. He was employed as an assistant professor at the University of Tulsa since 2008. He joined Washington University at St Louis as a lecturer in August 2014.
Dr. Zhang’s research has been focused in the area of modeling and performance analysis of vehicular wireless communication systems. He also has experience in development of distributed wireless sensor networks with applications in target tracking and environment monitoring. Dr. Zhang’s research interests and expertise are also in the areas of multi-source information fusion and inferences under ambiguous and incomplete information.
