WHO: Xingqi Zhang 

WHEN: 17 May, 09:30-10:20

Transforming metropolitan areas into “smart” cities requires the large-scale deployment of leading-edge information and communication technologies. From wireless control of mass transit systems, 5G/6G/THz cellular communications, to smart factory/home and environment and health monitoring, the successful application of those emerging technologies relies on the availability of accurate and efficient computational planning tools. Such tools are necessary to evaluate the performance of those technologies, and are indispensable for the design and deployment of corresponding geographically distributed wireless access points and sensor networks.
This talk will present recent research on the development and application of such high-performance computational tools, integrating the physics of electromagnetic wave propagation with system-level design and optimization techniques, for the development and deployment of emerging 5G and beyond wireless technologies in smart cities. 
The talk will focus on the intelligent planning of wireless systems and networks in railway transportation, including the development of physics-based propagation models, application of machine learning and stochastic uncertainty quantification techniques, electromagnetic interference and signal analysis, as well as network-level performance optimization. In the end, some ongoing and future work on extending current modeling and optimization framework to a broader range of smart city applications will be discussed.
Dr. Xingqi Zhang is currently an Assistant Professor at the University College Dublin (UCD). He is also an Associate Investigator in the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Future Networks and Communications in Ireland. Prior to joining UCD, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Toronto, where he obtained both his M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. 
His research is in the interdisciplinary areas of applied electromagnetics and wireless communications, with a focus on the development of high-performance computational models for emerging wireless technologies in 5G/6G/THz communications, intelligent transportation, industrial Internet of Things, as well as biomedical sensing and healthcare applications. 
He has served as an Associate Editor for the IET Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation, and the IEEE Journal on Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Techniques, as well as a TPC Member and Session Chair for several high-profile conferences. He was the recipient of the RIA Charlemont Award from the Royal Irish Academy, the Young Scientist Award from the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), and several Best Paper Awards at international symposia.
