Brief Bio

Zhiguo Ding received his B.Eng in Electrical Engineering from the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2000, and the Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering from Imperial College London in 2005. He is currently a Professor in Communications at University of Manchester and Khalifa University. Previously, he had been working in Queen's University Belfast, Imperial College, Newcastle University and Lancaster University. From Oct. 2012 to Sept. 2024, he has also been an academic visitor in Prof. Vincent Poor's group at Princeton University.
Dr Ding' research interests are machine learning, B5G networks, cooperative and energy harvesting networks and statistical signal processing. His h-index is over 100 and his work receives 50,000+ Google citations. He is serving as an Area Editor for the IEEE TWC and OJ-COMS, an Editor for IEEE TVT, COMST, and OJ-SP, and was an Editor for IEEE TCOM, IEEE WCL, IEEE CL and WCMC. He received the best paper award of IET ICWMC-2009 and IEEE WCSP-2014, the EU Marie Curie Fellowship 2012-2014, the Top IEEE TVT Editor 2017, IEEE Heinrich Hertz Award 2018, IEEE Jack Neubauer Memorial Award 2018, IEEE Best Signal Processing Letter Award 2018, Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award 2020, IEEE SPCC Technical Recognition Award 2021, and IEEE VTS Best Magazine Paper Award 2023. He is a Web of Science Highly Cited Researcher in two disciplines (2019-2023), an IEEE ComSoc Distinguished Lecturer, and a Fellow of the IEEE.
