Background and activities

Yuming Jiang received his BSc degree from Peking University, MEng degree from Beijing Institute of Technology, and PhD degree from the National University of Singapore (NUS). Before his PhD study, he worked with Motorola. He was a Research Engineer at NUS, from 1999 to 2001. From 2001 to 2003, he was with the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), Singapore as a Member of Technical Staff and Research Scientist. In Jan 2004, he joined the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), and since Dec 2005, he has been a full Professor  at NTNU. He visited Northwestern University, USA, from Aug 2009 - July 2010, and Columbia University, USA, from Aug 2015 - July 2016.

He is recipient of a fellowship from the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM). He was Chair and board member of IEEE Norway Section. 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, General Chair of IFIP Networking 2014 Conference, Chair of 2018 International Workshop on Network Calculus and Applications (NetCal 2018), and TPC Co-Chair of the 32nd International Teletraffic Congress (ITC32), 2020. 

His research interests are in the provision and analysis of quality of service guarantees in communication networks, network management, and network calculus. 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. He is author of the book ”Stochastic Network Calculus” published by Springer in 2008.
