Hui Yuan


hui_yuanHui Yuan received his BEng degree in automation from Beijing Jiaotong University and MSc degree in communication networks and signal processing from the University of Bristol. In November 2015, he joined the High Performance Group at the University of Bristol to pursue a PhD. In December 2016, he transferred to the Optical Networks Group at UCL as a PhD candidate. Under the supervision of Dr Georgios Zervas, he is currently investigating the performance of SDM-WDM based Data Centre Networks and disaggregated Data Centre Networks.
