Hang Qiu


I’m a Ph.D. candidate in Networked System Lab @ USC. My advisor is Prof. Ramesh Govindan. I’m broadly interested in Networked Intelligence in IoT Systems, Mobile / Edge Computing, Wireless Networking, and Crowdsourcing Systems. My current research focuses on Connected Autonomous Vehicles and Networked Video Analytics.
