Xiang Fei


I received a BSc and an Msc from Southeast University China in 1992 and 1995 respectively. In 1999 I went on to receive my PhD from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Southeast University China. After graduation, I worked on a number of projects including: two European IST Programs: WINE - Wireless Internetworking (2000-2002) and Euro6IX - European IPv6 Internet Exchanges Backbone (2002-2004), and an EPSRC project: PROSEN - Proactive Condition Monitoring of Sensor Networks (2005-2008). I joined Cogent as a Research Fellow in October 2008 and I am currently working as a lecturer for the School of Computing, Electronics and Maths at Coventry University.
