Zhou Xinyan


I’m a PhD student in the College of Electronical Engineering, Zhejiang University. I received a B.E. degree in the College of Electronical Engineering Zhejiang University in 2014. My research interests include wireless sensor network (WSN), wireless communications and embedded systems security.


• Routing protocol in dynamic WSN

• Delay optimization for extreme dynamic WSN

• Power consumption optimization for embedded devices

• Secure communication protocol for mobile devices
