In addition to tenure and getting promoted to Associate Professor, Ying Zhang also received an NSF CAREER award this year with title: Adaptive Power Management for Supercapacitor-Operated Sustainable Wireless Sensor Networks. Dr. Ying Zhang’s research interests focus on systems level of interdisciplinary problems, and she has extensive research experience and publications in multiple engineering disciplines. Her recent research aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice in intelligent monitoring and information extraction systems. One specific focus is adaptive power management for sustainable wireless sensor networks that do ambient energy harvesting. The other specific focus is multisensor data fusion and visualization for information extraction from heterogeneous/homogeneous sensors in monitoring and/or diagnostic systems. Additionally, she has been actively involved in several research projects related to sensors, smart sensing systems, and MEMS design automation and synthesis.
