Biography

        Dr. Nan Yang was born in Hebei, China in December 1982. He received the B.S. degree in Electronics from China Agricultural University, China, in 2005, the M.S. degree in Electronic Engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT), China, in 2007, and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from a joint programme between the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia and BIT in March 2011. Since July 2014, he has been with the Research School of Engineering at the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia, where he is currently a Future Engineering Research Leadership Fellow and a Senior Lecturer. He is also the leader of the multi-scale communications research team. Prior to this, he was a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation from October 2010 to September 2012 and a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at UNSW from October 2012 to June 2014. He received the Top Editor Award from the Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies in 2017, the Exemplary Reviewer Certificate of the IEEE Transactions on Communications in 2016 and 2015, the Top Reviewer Award from the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology in 2015, the IEEE ComSoc Asia-Pacific Outstanding Young Researcher Award and the Exemplary Reviewer Certificate of the IEEE Wireless Communications Letters in 2014, and the Exemplary Reviewer Certificate of the IEEE Communications Letters in 2013 and 2012. Also, he is the co-recipient of Best Paper Awards at the IEEE GlobeCOM 2016 and the IEEE VTC Spring 2013. His general research interests include communications theory and signal processing, with specific interests in massive multiple-antenna systems, heterogeneous wireless networks, millimetre wave communications, collaborative and distributed signal processing, cyber-physical security, and molecular communications.

        Dr. Nan Yang is currently serving on the editorial board of the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology (SWAT Team), and the Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies. He has also served as the Guest Editor of three special issues and the Reviewer of several international prestigious journals, e.g., IEEE Communications Magazines, IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, IEEE Transactions on Communications, IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, IEEE Communications Letters, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, and several international flagship conferences. He has further served as a Technical Program Committee (TPC) Member for several IEEE flagship conferences such as IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC), IEEE Global Communications Conference (GlobeCOM), IEEE VTC, and the Australian Communications Theory Workshop.
