Professor Xia received his PhD degree in Electronics from Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU), China in 2003. His postdoctoral research was finished in Computer Department of XJTU in 2006. From Jun, 2010 to Jun, 2011, he studied as a research scholar of Electronics in University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA. From Sep. 2014 to Oct. 2014, he studied as a senior research fellow of Computer Science in University of Sherbrooke, Canada. He had also served as a short-term visiting professor in Wake Forest University, USA (2012), Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland (2015), and Central Queensland University, Australia (2016) respectively.
Professor Xia has been engaging in research on electronic engineering, communication technology, and instrument development. As PI or Co-PI, he has implemented more than 20 research projects at the national, provincial and ministerial level. He has authored more than 60 peer-reviewed journal papers indexed by SCI or EI, and edited 3 textbooks. Since 2004, he has been serving as an introduced talent and professor in HEBUT, His current research covers intelligent information processing & big data mining, wireless communications & smart antenna, wireless sensor network, oil logging and other fields.
He won a lot of honors in guiding students’ academic research, and his graduated postgraduates were employed in domestic and foreign famous enterprises or research institutes or universities. He visited many prestigious universities abroad, such as MIT, Stanford, UCB, CalTech, UMich, Duke, McGill, UToronto, USydney, UMelbourne and UCDublin, and maintains benign academic exchanges and cooperation with dozens of universities abroad, joint training PhD students as well. Moreover, he is also guiding five international PhD students and one international postdoctoral fellow now.
