Dr Jiong Jin is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Software and Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology, Swinburne University of Technology. He received the B.Eng degree with First Class Honours in Computer Engineering from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2006, and Ph.D. degree from the University of Melbourne, Australia, in 2011. Before joining Swinburne, Jiong was a Research Fellow in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Melbourne from 2011 to 2013, where he was also affiliated with ARC Research Network on Intelligent Sensors, Sensor Networks and Information Processing (ISSNIP). The research focus of Jiong is on design, control and performance optimization of networked and embedded systems such as Internet of Things (IoT) and networked robotics. More specifically, his research interests include network design and optimization, fog and edge computing, robotics and automation, Internet of Things and cyber-physical systems as well as their applications in smart manufacturing, smart transportation and smart cities. The goal of his research is to develop foundational theories and tools for concrete understanding and modelling of network system dynamics, to design scalable architecture and distributed algorithms for better performance, efficiency and robustness, and to further provide predictions that can be quantitatively verified by empirical data.

Meanwhile, Jiong is currently serving within the Advisory Committee of Chinese Association of Professionals and Scholars (CAPS), Australia, which is a professional organization established in 2006 and officially registered under the Victorian government in 2012. CAPS aims to promote academic communications and cultural exchanges between Australia and China, and now has over 500 members and a close contact with over 800 young researchers from universities and institutions across Victoria.
