Short Bio

Zhihan is a PHD student of Computer Science Department at Rutgers UniversityThe State University of New Jersey since 2015 and supervised by  Prof. Desheng Zhang.  Zhihan's research interests are Cyber Physical Systems(CPS), especially Urban Computing or Smart City.

Before joining Rutgers, Zhihan worked as an intern at Oracle R&D Center, Shanghai in 2014 and 2015. In 2014, Zhihan was invited by SeaLab, University of Mannitoba, Canada as a research intern, with the scholarship from China Scholarship Council(CSC) and Mitacs.

Zhihan received a BE degree in School of Software Engineering of Tongji University, China in 2015.
