Background and activities

Yuming Jiang received his BSc degree in Electronic Engineering from Peking University (also known as Beijing University) in 1988, MEng degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology in 1991, and PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) from the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2001. Before his PhD study from 1997, he worked with Motorola. He was a Research Engineer at the ECE Department, NUS, from December 1999 to May 2001. From June 2001 to December 2003, he was with the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), Singapore as a Member of Technical Staff and Research Scientist, where he led the Next Generation Networks lab. From July 2003 to June 2004, he was an Adjunct Assistant Professor of the ECE Department, NUS. He joined from January 2004 the Centre for Quantifiable Quality of Service in Communication Systems (Q2S), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), where he stayed until November 2005. In 2008 - 2012, he was co-appointed at Q2S as Professor. He visited Northwestern University, USA, from Aug 2009 - July 2010, and Columbia University, USA, from Aug 2015 - July 2016. Since Dec 2005, he has been with NTNU, where he is a full Professor.

He is recipient of a fellowship from the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM). He was Co-Chair of IEEE Globecom2005— General Conference Symposium, TPC Co-Chair of 67th IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC) 2008, General/TPC Co-Chair of International Symposium on Wireless Communication Systems (ISWCS) 2007-2010, and General Chair of IFIP Networking 2014 Conference. He was Chair and presently board member of IEEE Norway Section. He is author of the book ”Stochastic Network Calculus” published by Springer in 2008.

His research interests include the provision of quality of service guarantees in communication networks, performance evaluation of communication networks and network calculus, multimedia delivery over communication networks and network management. In the area of network calculus, his focus has been on developing fundamental models and investigating their basic properties for stochastic network calculus (snetcal), and recently also on applying snetcal to performance analysis of wireless networks and on extending snetcal to information-driven networks and energy/power networks.
