Dr. Xingqi Zhang is currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, University College Dublin, Ireland. He is also affiliated with the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Toronto, Canada, as a Visiting Professor. His research is in the interdisciplinary areas of computational electromagnetics and wireless communications. A particular focus is on the development of high-performance computational models/algorithms for emerging wireless technologies in 5G/6G/THz wireless communications, intelligent transportation (air, ground, underground), underwater communications, industrial Internet of Things, as well as biomedical sensing and healthcare applications.
He has been involved in a variety of research council and industry-funded projects, and has been collaborating with many world-leading universities and international companies. The projects cover the following topics: wireless channel modeling and optimization in indoor, urban, and terrestrial environments, multiphysics and multiscale modeling for electromagnetic, micro-/nano-electronic, and biomedical problems, indoor/outdoor localization, machine learning and parametric modeling, stochastic uncertainty quantification, electromagnetic compatibility and interference (EMC/EMI) analysis, reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS), as well as antenna and RF/microwave/millimeter-wave design & measurement.
He is a member of IEEE, a senior member of URSI, and a reviewer of many international journals and conferences. He has served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Journal on Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Techniques, and as a Technical Program Committee Member and Session Chair for several high-profile conferences, including the IEEE MTT-S International Conference on Numerical Electromagnetic and Multiphysics Modeling and Optimization (NEMO), the IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation (AP-S), etc. 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.
