Senior Lecturer and HDR Advisor
Ph.D. in Engineering, The University of Melbourne, Australia; Bachelor of Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore


Dr. Jiong Jin is a Senior Lecturer in 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 Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, 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 control and 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, nonlinear systems and sliding mode control, robotics, wireless sensor networks and Internet of things, cyber-physical systems and applications in smart grids 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 300 members and a close contact with over 800 young researchers from universities and institutions across Victoria.

PhD topics and outlines

Cloud Networked Robotics: Cloud Robotics is a new yet exciting field that deals with the concept of a network of robots leveraging ubiquitous cloud for collective intelligence. Diverse applications are now being proposed to utilize the benefit of cloud services for robotic networks. A typical example is “Noise Patrol Robots” that assist to better deal with urban noise problem in the smart city domain.

Distributed and Stochastic Network Optimization: Optimization theory has been widely applied to communication networks and become an essential modeling language and design method. We are interested in this project to develop distributed and/or stochastic optimization algorithms for diverse networking problems such as congestion control, resource allocation and cross-layer design.

Real-Time Internet of Things: The Internet of things (IoT) is an emerging revolution, which targets anytime connectivity for anything to create smart environments in which there is fast-paced interaction between systems and between such systems and people. The project aims to develop a flexible software-defined IoT platform to provide real-time services for smart city applications.

Wireless Robotic Networks: With the advance of M2M communications, wireless robotic networks can be formed to handle more complex and time-critical tasks in a distributed and parallel manner. The project aims to address 1) controllable mobility to enhance cross-layer optimization of communication protocols; 2) M2M to support dynamic resource management and self-organization for a team of cooperative robots.
