BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Yanlin Geng received my B.Sc. (mathematics and applied mathematics) and M.Eng. (signal and information processing) from Peking University, and Ph.D. (information engineering) from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2006, 2009, and 2012, respectively. 

Dr. Yanlin Geng is mainly interested in some mathematical problems arisen in signal processing and network information theory. Since 2009, he has been focusing on broadcast channel. Recently he is also working on optimization problems in models with additive Gaussian noises.
