Peiying Zhu

2023 Member-at-Large - Latin America/North America Region Candidate

Position Statement

ComSoc plays a crucial role advancing communication technologies. I have been actively involved in ComSoc, serving as the director of the Industry Outreach Board, general co-chair of 2023 PIMRC, vice general chair of WCNC 2022, organizing various workshops and panels in IEEE flagship conferences. I have also served as a guest editor for several special journal issues. I benefit greatly from ComSoc, and are keen to volunteer my experience and time to make ComSoc even more valuable for both Academia and Industry. If elected as the Member-at-Large, I will work together with you to:

  1. Continue promoting the membership in Industry. Encouraging more active involvement of industries to bridge the gap between Academia researches and industry applications.
  2. Promoting more programs to help young professionals to seek career development opportunities in industry.
  3. Ensure ComSoc is an inclusive and balanced community in terms of gender, race, region, and profession.
