Personal profile

Dongyao Jia is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Communications and Networking, XJTLU. He received the BEng in Automation from Harbin Engineering University, China in 1998, and the PhD degree in Computer Science from the City University of Hong Kong in 2014. Prior to joining XJTLU, he worked as a Research Fellow in the School of Civil Engineering, the University of Queensland, Australia, from 2018 to 2021, and the Institute for Transport Studies, University of Leeds, the UK from 2015 to 2018, respectively. He also holds a ten-year working experience in the telecom industry in China, when he was promoted to Senior Engineer (2008). He is also an Honorary Senior Research Fellow at the University of Queensland.His primary research is to apply advanced ICT technologies to the area of connected and automated driving and intelligent transport systems, specifically focusing on vehicular networks, intelligent traffic flow modeling and cooperative driving, big-data analytics in transport, and digital-twin-enabled transportation. Most of these works have been widely published in prestigious journals or conferences, e.g. IEEE TITS, TVT, Commun. Surveys Tuts., Transportation Research Part B/C, IEEE INFOCOM, etc. More publications can be found via Google scholar and Researchgate

Ph.D. student or RA opportunities: I am always looking for self-motivated students who are interested in the areas of intelligent transportation, connected and autonomous driving, etc.

Update: A new PhD scholarship is available on the topic of Information-based driving strategy for connected automated vehicles in mixed traffic environment, please feel free to contact me if you are interested.
