This is Jun Zhao, an Assistant Professor in the College of Computing and Data Science (CCDS) - formerly known as the School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore. I received a PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in the USA, affiliating with CMU's renowned CyLab Security & Privacy Institute, and a bachelor’s degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) in China.

Before joining NTU first as a postdoc and then as a faculty member, I was a postdoc at Arizona State University (ASU) as an Arizona Computing PostDoc Best Practices Fellow. I have received best editor awards from IEEE journals and best paper awards from conferences/journals.


I am writing a series of papers on advanced mathematical optimization, some of which may have significant impacts. Please stay tuned!
