Biography

Dr. Guodong (Philip) Zhao received his B.E. degree from Xidian University, Xi’an, China, in 2005, and his Ph.D. degree from Beihang University, Beijing, China, in 2011, both in Electrical Engineering. In 2011-2018, he was an associate professor at the University of Electronic Science and Technol­ogy of China (UESTC), Chengdu, China. In 2018, he joined University of Glasgow in UK as a lecturer (assis­tant professor). He has 10 years of experience working on wireless communications research with international partners. He is a senior member of IEEE. He published 1 book in Springer press and more than 50 peer-reviewed research papers (more than 10 IEEE transaction papers), had 1300+ citations in Google Scholar, and won a best paper award in IEEE Globecom 2012 and a best poster award in IEEE WCNC 2018.

PhD Project 

I’m looking for PhD applicants who are interested in the following research:

Project: Mobile Edge Computing for Telerobotics in 5G and 6G

Description: The 5th and 6th generation cellular networks (5G and 6G) with impressive performance provide great potentials to exchange data and skills over wireless networks. Telerobotics is one of them which spans wide range of applications such as remote operation in Industry 4.0, healthcare, education, etc, especially in case of infectious diseases. Afflictive effects of Covid-19 on socio-economic life over last few months proves the importance of remote operation especially in case of emergency situations, where people cannot physically be present on site. Thus, there will be strong demand and a large market for remote controlled robotics in the future. However, real-time robotic control requires ultra-reliable and low-latency communications to satisfy control performance requirements. The biggest challenge is to have reliable and low-latency remote robotic control over wireless links. In this project, Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) techniques will be studied to address the challenge from the perspective of co-design of communication protocols, robotic systems, and inference engines, where machine learning, artificial intelligent (AI), real-time analysis, optimization techniques will be used. Students are expected to design and test their ideas using the 5G testbed and tele-robotic testbed at University of Glasgow.

Applicants are expected to be self-funded.
