Yanchao Zhang joined Arizona State University in June 2010 as an associate professor in the School of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering. Before ASU, he was an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology from 2006 to 2010. He is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology and a technical editor of IEEE Wireless Communications. He was a guest editor of IEEE Wireless Communications special issue on security and privacy in emerging wireless networks in 2010 and a symposium TPC co-chair of IEEE GLOBECOM 2010. He also routinely serves as a TPC member for major international conferences such as INFOCOM, ICDCS, ICNP, MobiHoc, PerCom, NDSS, WiSec, and SECON.
