Committed to Optimizing Networked Systems

Research group of computing, communications, and energy system optimization (C2E) is a research team led by Prof. Danny H.K. Tsang with the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). We are committed to enhancing the performances of engineering systems via various mathematical modeling and optimization techniques (e.g., stochastic optimization, discrete optimization, queueing theory).

Our current research interests include optimal design and resource management in cloud/edge computing, wireless communications, and smart energy systems. As a matter of fact, over the past 25 years, we have studied various topics in computer communications and networking, including Asynchronous Transfer Mode, peer-to-peer networks, video streaming, content delivery networks, cognitive radio networks and the like. Starting from the area of computer networks, our horizon is now expanded to power networks and smart grids as well. Some sample problems that we have been working on are EV charging scheduling, frequency regulation, management of renewable energy, and pricing mechanisms in smart grids. You can interpret the name of our group, C2E, also as the research scope broadened from computer communication systems to smart energy systems.
