ISR alumna Haitao Zheng named to 'top 35 innovators under 35' list


ISR alum Haitao Zheng has been named one of the top 35 innovators under the age of 35 by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Technology Review magazine. The magazine cited Zheng for her "youth and brilliance," noting her work on cognitive radios, which dynamically detect unused radio frequencies, helping alleviate competition in the radio spectrum.

Zheng will continue her research on open spectrum systems this fall in her new position as an assistant professor of computer science at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Zheng earned her PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1999, and was nominated for the TR 35 by Professor K.J. Ray Liu (ECE/ ISR), her Ph.D. advisor. She won the 1998-1999 ISR Outstanding Graduate Student award. She was later recruited to Microsoft Research in China.

The TR 35 list includes inventors, discoverers, and entrepreneurs engaged in emerging technology, recognizing individuals in both academia and industry whose "achievements will shape the world we live in for decades to come." ISR-affiliated Assistant Professor Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS) made the list in 2004. The list formerly cited the top 100 innovators, but was reduced to 35 this year. | Read the story at Technology Review |
