Biography

Dr. Lei Zhang received his B.Eng. degree in Communication Engineering and M.Sc. degree in Electromagnetic Fields and Microwave Technology, both from the Northwestern Polytechnic University (NWPU), Xi'an, China, and Ph.D. from the University of Sheffield, U.K. in 2011. He joined Huawei Communication Technology Laboratory (CT Lab) as a research engineer from Feb. 2012 to Nov. 2013. Since Dec. 2013, he was a research fellow in the 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC), Institute of Communications (ICS), University of Surrey, U.K. He joined the School of Engineering, University of Glasgow, as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Jul. 2017. He also has work experience with Siemens China on RF coil design for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

He has more than 5 years’ direct work experience on 3G/4G/5G wireless communications research. He had been broadly involved into EU FP7 IJOIN project, 5GIC project, EPSRC project, industry collaboration research project, China National Science and Technology Major Project and also contributed to 3GPP RAN1 standardizations. He held 16 international patents on wireless communication systems and applications. He has published more than 20 top quality journal papers and 3 book chapters. He secured one industrial collaborative research project funding (£223,000) as co-investigator with Huawei on Sparse Code Multiple Access (SCMA). Dr Lei Zhang involves into the communication/signal processing society activates and took conference track chair / TPC or similar roles for more than 30 times, including of several IEEE flagship conferences (ICC, Globecom, VTC, PIMRC, WCNC, etc.). In addition, he led guest editors of two international journals. Dr Lei Zhang co-supervises 6 PhD students with their research topics across the PHY from massive MIMO, Full-duplex, new air-interface for 5G and beyond, IoT, etc.

Research Interests

Dr Lei Zhang’s research interests broadly lie in the Communications and Array Signal Processing. Recently, his research focuses on physical layer and MAC layer communication systems with potential applications to 5G scenarios: enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC) to Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communications (URLLC). Specifically, Physical layer network slicing (RAN slicing), new air interface design (waveform, frame structure, etc.), Internet of Things (IoT), multi-antenna signal processing, cloud radio access networks, massive MIMO systems, Full-duplex, etc.
