Xiaowen Gong was chosen as the 2014-2015 winner of the Palais Outstanding Doctoral Student Award. He graduated in spring 2015 after completing his degree under the supervision of Junshan Zhang, a professor in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. Gong has published seven journal papers and 17 conference papers.

Now a postdoctoral researcher at Ohio State University, his current research interests lie in the general field of computer communication networks, with focus on social computing and networks, security and privacy. He graduated with a 4.0 GPA at ASU, and received the IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications (INFOCOM) Runner-up Best Paper Award in 2014.

“It is a great honor and I am very pleased to have received this distinguished award from ECEE,” said Gong.

The Palais Award has recognized the highest-achieving electrical engineering doctoral students since 2003.
