Five Virginia Tech researchers have been named to the annual Highly Cited Researchers list from Clarivate. Wenjing Lou, Walid Saad, Linsey Marr, Lina Quan, and Zheng "Phil" Xiang have demonstrated significant influence reflected in their publication of multiple highly cited papers over the last decade.
Five Virginia Tech faculty members have been named to the annual highly cited researchers list from Clarave Wen Jing, Lu Wally Sod, Lindsay, Mar, Lena Kwan and Zinsan, who also goes by Phil, have demonstrated significant influence reflected through their publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Being cited by one's peers is not only an acknowledgment of the importance of a researcher's work, but also an indicator that that work is playing a significant role in moving that particular four. My research is centered on cybersecurity. I work at the intersection of security and various cyber infrastructures. I investigate information technologies, for example, mobile networks, cloud systems, block chain, and most recently, machine learning systems. My goal is to identify potential vulnerabilities in those systems, and then develop and evaluate effective countermeasures. Fundamentally, we are environmental engineers and aerosol scientists. Viruses in the air mattered even before the pandemic. Pandemic really brought to our attention the importance of understanding transmission of viruses through the air. Covid 19 is transmitted mainly through viruses that are released into the air. And understanding how they travel and how well they survive is really critical for being able to understand transmission and how to mitigate it overlap envisioning the next generation semiconducting materials. The semiconductors are materials that has unique electronic and optical properties and make them essential components for more than electronics. For example, they can convert the light solar energy to the electricity. And we can also use semiconductors for display electronics. I work at the intersection of wireless technologies and artificial intelligence. To live your life nowadays, you have to be connected, right? And the ability for you to access the Internet through your smartphone is because of wireless technologies. So we're kind of trying to see if we can create a wireless network that is, so to speak, living, Meaning it's just like a human being. It can't think, it can't reason, it can actually take input and decide what to do by itself. My research is really about understanding how technology is changing travel, changing tourism, changing how people consume hospitality services. How does that change the fabrics of the industry? We studied technology, but technology moves fast. Through the lens of technology, we get a sense of what the future looks like.
