Xia Zhou

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Dartmouth College. I co-direct the DartNets (Dartmouth Networking and Ubiquitous Systems) Lab with Prof. Andrew T. Campbell. I received my PhD in Computer Science at UC Santa Barbara in June, 2013. I worked under the supervision of Prof. Heather Zheng.

My research interest lies in mobile systems and wireless networking, dynamic spectrum access, and data centers. My earlier work designed network systems to handle the volume and unpredictable nature of today's data traffic. I have designed dynamic spectrum auction systems to support dynamic traffic demands in wireless networks, and a new wireless primitive to address dynamic traffic hotspots in data centers.

I am looking for motivated students on mobile systems and wireless networking. Please email me with your CV if you are interested. Before you apply, please take a look at this website to know more about Dartmouth PhD program.
