About Us

Welcome! Our group conducts research spanning a broad range of topics in networked and communication systems, including network protocols and architecture, sensor networks, wireless networks, and wireless communications. We focus on fundamental networking and communication problems. Our research methodology is a combination of analytical and empirical approaches. We have been actively collaborating with researchers from various places.

Recruiting

We are actively looking for self-motivated, enthusiastic students to join our group. If you are interested in working with us, please indicate your interest in NEST group when you apply graduate degree programs at School of Electronic Information and Communications, Huazhong University of Science and Technology.
