Dr. Jiang (Linda) Xie, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was elevated to IEEE Fellow, effective January 1, 2020. In making the recommendation for this distinction, the IEEE Board of Directors cited her contributions to mobility and resource management in wireless networks. The IEEE elects no more than one-tenth of one percent of the total voting members annually for this prestigious recognition.
Dr. Xie joined the ECE Department at UNC Charlotte in August 2004. Her research is focused on the design of communication protocols and algorithms for network management in heterogeneous wireless networks, in particular, mobility management, radio resource management, and Quality-of-Service (QoS) management in next-generation cellular networks, cognitive radio networks, Internet of Things (IoT) based on cloud/edge computing, and mobile augmented reality (AR)/mixed reality (MR)/virtual reality (VR) systems. Dr. Xie has secured over $3.6 Million of external research funding as a Principal Investigator (PI), which includes the prestigious NSF CAREER award. She has also been awarded the Bonnie Cone Fellowship from the NSF ADVANCE Program at UNC-Charlotte for women faculty members in STEM disciplines, and numerous best paper awards and professional recognitions. Dr. Xie has published over 100 technical articles on her research. She is a senior member of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM).
