I am looking for prospective PhD students and postdocs who want to work under my supervision in the area of wireless networking (with focus on cloud computing, cloud-based content delivery networks, mobile edge computing, fog computing, IoT communication and applications, mobile blockchain applications).

If interested, please, mail your CV to asheralievaa@sustc.edu.cn as soon as possible.

For Ph.D.:

Your research will be supervised by me and co-supervised by Prof. Gengfa Fang from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia.

As a result, you will spend 2 years of your PhD at SUSTech and another 2 years at UTS.

If successful, you will get two degrees, one from SUSTech and another from UTS.

The details about the application process and requirements of the scholarship are available of the website:


To be considered for a scholarship, you must apply before November 30 2018.

If interested, please, e-mail your CV to me as soon as possible.

In this case, we will discuss your possibility of getting a scholarship, your research plans and research proposal.
