ECE alumnus Zhu Han, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Houston, has won a National Science Foundation CAREER Award for his research, titled "Mutual Benefit in Cognitive Radio Networks: A Coalitional Game Framework."

Cognitive radio is a revolutionary wireless communication paradigm in which cognitive (secondary) users are able to observe, learn, optimize, and intelligently adapt for spectrum utilization without interfering with traditionally licensed (primary) users.The goal of Han's project is to improve cognitive radio network performance through a game theory perspective.

Han earned his Ph.D. at Maryland in 2003, and stayed on as a postdoctoral researcher until 2006. He was advised by Professor K.J. Ray Liu. Han and Liu co-wrote a book, titled "Resource Allocation for Wireless Networks: Basics, Techniques, and Applications."
