Xianhe Yangzhang


Xianhe Yangzhang received his BEng degree in Electronic and Information Engineering from Beihang University, China, in 2014. Between 2014 and 2016, he undertook his MSc degree in Communication Engineering at Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany. During his MSc programme, he did his research internship and MSc thesis with Mansoor Yousefi both on Nonlinear Fourier Transform (NFT) and its applications to fibre communication.
He officially joined ONG on 27 September, 2016, his area of work is the further study of NFT and development of a novel coding scheme for fibre communications.
