Dr Zheng Wang


I am an associate professor at the School of Computing at the University of Leeds. I am a member of the Distributed Systems and Services Group at Leeds and the HiPEAC Network of Excellence.

Research interests

I am interested in developing new methods and building systems to allow computers to adapt to the ever-changing environment. My research often uses machine learning as a design methodology. My work draws from, combines and contributes to the areas of compiler-based code optimisation, runtime scheduling, parallel programming and applied machine learning. My recent research also targets systems security.

I am a recipient of the Best Paper Award in PACT 2010, CGO 2017, PACT 2017, CGO 2019, Best Presentation Award at PACT 2010, CGO 2013, a HiPEAC paper award in 2009, and Best Paper Nomination/Finalist in ACM CCS 2018 and ACM Sensys 2019.
