Xiaohan Kang


University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign


Xiaohan Kang is a postdoctoral research associate with the CSL at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign working with Prof. Bruce Hajek. He received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering at Arizona State University under the supervision of Prof. Lei Ying in 2015.

His research lies broadly in applied probability with emphasis in queueing theory and stochastic analysis. He applies classical modeling and analysis techniques to network science, which spans from data networks to biological networks.
