Dipl.-Ing. Zuo Xiang

PhD Researcher

Zuo Xiang is a Ph.D. student at “Deutsche Telekom Chair of Communication Networks” at TU Dresden.

He was born in Gansu, China and studied at the Xidian University (Xi’an China) where he received his bachelor degree with honors (cum laude) in telecommunications engineering in 2014. After finishing his bachelor, he moved to Germany where he received his Diplom degree with honors (cum laude) in electrical engineering (2018) at Dresden University of Technology. During his studies, he worked as a student assistant and worked as an intern at Ericsson Eurolab for software development and network engineering. His current research focus is on ultra low latency and energy-efficient network softwarization, Computing In the Network (COIN) and network performance evaluation. He has experience in Linux network engineering and has an in-depth understanding of the internal structure of the operating system, network system design, network stacks and protocols.
