Lassonde professor elevated to IEEE Fellow

Ping Wang

Lassonde Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Ping Wang, has been elevated to an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Fellow as of January 2022. Wang received the recognition for her contributions to radio resource allocation and performance modelling of heterogeneous wireless networks.

Wang, a Tier-2 York Research Chair in AI Empowered Next generation Communication Networks, is a highly recognized researcher for her pioneering and innovative research on resource allocation in mobile cloud computing networks. As a preeminent scholar in the integration of wireless networks and cloud computing systems, she has developed innovative and adaptive offloading algorithms that adapt to the rapidly changing wireless environment. She has also made significant contributions to cognitive radio networks (CRNs) towards achieving self-sustainable wireless networks through her modelling approaches for dynamic spectrum access and spectrum sensing. 

Wang has published more than 250 high-quality publications and is the recipient of four best paper awards from IEEE conferences. She is in the list of Clarivate Analytics (previously Thomson Reuters) “Highly Cited Researcher” in 2021. She was one of only five York faculty members on the prestigious Computer Science Guide2Research List of top scientists with influential contributions to computer science. She was also listed on Stanford’s top 2 per cent of all researchers worldwide study (published in PLOS biology) based on standardized citation metrics in the field of networking and telecommunications.

She has been invited to serve as editor for several IEEE journals such as IEEE Transactions of Wireless Communications, IEEE Open Journal of Vehicular Technology, IEEE Communications Surveys & Tutorials, and as conference symposium co-chairs for several IEEE conferences. She also serves as a chair of Networking Technology for the Multimedia Communications Interest Group of IEEE Multimedia Communications Technical Committee.
