About Me

Teaching my daughter, Ning mathematics ... (Fact: She just scratched my research papers).

Teaching my daughter, Ning mathematics … (Fact: She just scratched my research papers).

Zan-Kai Chong received his electronics engineering degree (majoring in Computer) and Master in Engineering Science degree from Multimedia University, Cyberjaya, Malaysia in 2006 and 2010 respectively. He is currently a senior lecturer in Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Faculty of Engineering Science, Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, Malaysia. His research areas includes wireless mesh network, wireless sensor network, decongestion control and error correction code. Zan-Kai Chong’s email address is chongzk@utar.edu.my.
