Dr. Wei ZHANG is currently an Assistant Professor with the Information and Communications Technology Cluster, Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT). Before joining SIT, he was a Scientist at the Agency for Science, Technology, and Research (A*STAR), Singapore. From 2015 to 2017, he was a Research Fellow at NTU, Singapore. Dr. Zhang received the B.Sc. degree in electronic information science and technology from the School of Science, Xidian University, Xi’an, China, in 2008, the M.Eng. degree in circuits and system from the School of Electronic Engineering, Xidian University in 2011, and the Ph.D. degree in computer science from the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, in 2015. Dr. Zhang serves as the Programme Leader of the Bachelor of Science with Honours in Computing Science programme. He also serves as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Internet of Things Journal (IoT-J) as well as the Area Chair, Track Chair, Review Committee Member, and TPC members of the top conferences such as IJCAI, GLOBECOM, and ICME. His research interests lie in utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) for smart cities, especially smart grid and smart buildings, towards improved user experience and enhanced sustainability.
