Brief biography

Ning Lu received the B.E. degree and the M.S. degree from the Department of Electronics and Information Engineering, Tongji University, Shanghai, China, in 2007 and 2010, respectively. He is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada, under the supervision of Prof. Xuemin (Sherman) Shen.

His current research interests include capacity and delay analysis, real-time scheduling, and cross-layer design for vehicular networks. He also did some collaborative research on cooperative cognitive radio networks. [My Google Scholar]
