# Chaodong ZHENG (郑朝栋) --- **E-mail:** my-first-name at nju dot edu dot cn **Office:** Room #302, Department of Computer Science and Technology, Xianlin Campus of Nanjing University --- I'm currently an assistant researcher in the [Theory Group](http://tcs.nju.edu.cn) of Department of Computer Science and Technology, [Nanjing University](https://www.nju.edu.cn/EN). My research area is distributed algorithms. Currently, my main research interest lies in providing efficient and/or fault-tolerant distributed algorithms for wireless networks. I obtained B.Eng. from [Huazhong University of Science and Technology](http://english.hust.edu.cn) where I majored in Information Security. After graduation, I spent around six years in Singapore (which is a beautiful city-state and island-state), and obtained PhD under the supervision of [Prof. Seth Gilbert](http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/~gilbert) at [National University of Singapore](http://www.nus.edu.sg). Before I joined Nanjing University, I was a postdoctoral researcher at [University of Freiburg](https://www.uni-freiburg.de), working with [Prof. Fabian Kuhn](http://ac.informatik.uni-freiburg.de/kuhn).
