Research and Publications

Pc. Ng is just an ordinary Ph.D. student, who is dedicated to proximity-related research, nothing great in her profile is worth a long essay here. Nonetheless, I would still list down my research interests and current research areas in line with the research directions of my lab. If you would like to know more about me, you can always check out my boring stories in life and interests. So, here it goes: my research interests including but not limited to (1) beacon-related IoT development,  (2) wireless/radio signal processing via compressive sensing and deep learning, (3) beacon-based proximity services, (4) context-aware and multimedia interactive applications for the smart city.

Most of all, I am deeply into the proximity-related research. I believe a better understanding of “proximity” from sociological and technological aspects is going to shed light on many research areas including proximity-based social networking, proximity communication, proximity multimedia application, proximity computing, proximity data offloading, etc. If you share the same vision or get inspired, let’s work things out together!

Below you can find a list of ongoing research projects. A list of publications is included, feel free to send me an email if you got any comments.
