Short Bio:

Ye Liu received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electronic Science and Engineering from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in 2013 and 2018, respectively. He was a Visiting Scholar with Montana State University, Bozeman, MT, USA from October 2014 to October 2015. He was a visiting Ph.D. Student from February 2017 to January 2018 with the Networked Embedded Systems Group, RISE Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS). He is currently a Researcher with Nanjing Agricultural University, Nanjing, China. He has authored or co-authored papers in several prestigious journals, such as the IEEE Communications Magazine, IEEE IoT Journal, IEEE TII, ACM TECS, and IEEE Network. Dr. Liu was awarded the 1st place of the EWSN Dependability Competition in 2019.
