Dr. Deyun Gao received a B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in electrical engineering and a Ph.D. degree in computer science from Tianjin University, China, in 1994, 1999, and 2002, respectively. He spent one year as a research associate with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Kowloon. He then spent three years as a research fellow in the School of Computer Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. From 2007, he was on the faculty of Beijing Jiaotong University as an associate professor of School of Electronics and Information Engineering, and was promoted to a full professor in 2012. His research interests are in the area of wireless sensor networks, vehicular networking, and next-generation Internet.

Dr. Gao’s primary research collaborator at UC Berkeley is Research Engineer Wei-Bin Zhang.
