Wireless@HKU Group

We are in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of The University of Hong Kong. Our research is broadly related to wireless transmission of information and its applications in different areas such as mobile edge computing, distributed machine learning, and 5G systems. The group is led by Dr. Kaibin Huang and comprises about 9 other members who are Ph.D students or research fellows.
