Dr. Chang received his Ph.D. from Georgia Tech in 2007 and M.S. from Columbia University in 2002, respectively. In 1996, he instructed air force officers in the Air Force Artillery School for three years in Korea, and worked at Bell Labs in 2002. He is also the author of the book, “Robust Mobile Networking” published in 2008. Hisresearch interest includes the modeling, protocol design and the optimization of wireless mobile networks with an emphasis on the implementationof wireless communication systems for WirelessMultimedia Communications, Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs), and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).
Dr. Chang is proposing a new paradigm, "Sustainable Mobile Networking" that improves sustainable environment by using intelligent mobile communication technology and smart infrastructure to reduce traffic congestion/air pollution and enhance transportation safety with future mobility support such as autonomous driving.
