Biography

Dr. Lei Zhang is a Professor of Trustworthy Systems at the University of Glasgow. He received his PhD degree from the University of Sheffield in Sept. 2011. He joined the University of Glasgow in Jul. 2017 as a Lecturer and was promoted to Senior Lecturer and then Professor in Aug. 2022. Prior to joining University of Glasgow, he was a Research Fellow at the 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC, Now 6GIC), University of Surrey until Jun. 2017. 

Professor Lei Zhang's research interests mainly focus on modelling, analysing, designing, optimising and implementing Trustworthy Connected Systems by considering digital connectivity, fault tolerance, resilience, reliability, security, privacy and safety. Dr Zhang has academia and industry combined research experience on 3G/4G/5G/6G telecommunications and networks, and trustworthy distributed systems for IoT, blockchain, consensus, and connected autonomous systems. 

His 20 patents (including 17 international PCT patents) are granted/filed in 30+ countries/regions including USA/UK/EU/China/Japan etc. He has contributed to telecom & distributed systems standardisation activities in 3GPP (the global mobile standardization body which defined 2G to 5G telecom protocols), ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute), ORAN (one of the world's largest international telecom alliances). Dr Zhang published 4 books, and 200+ publications in peer-reviewed journals (85%+ in SJR Q1 journals), conferences and edited books. He is/was PI or Co-I of 20+ research projects funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS, now DSIT), Scottish government and industry. He received the 2023 Digital Communications and Networks Journal Best Paper Award, the 2022 IEEE Internet of Things Journal Best Paper Award, the 2019 IEEE ComSoc TAOS Technical Committee Best Paper Award, in addition to several best paper awards in IEEE conferences.
