Ph.D: Electrical Engineering, 2006

Thesis: Privacy and Security in Decentralized Networks

Advisor: Hisashi Kobayashi, Bede Liu


Qiang Huang is currently a quantitative research associate at JPMorgan quantitative research group. He is involved in the areas of modeling of interest rate process, pricing fixed income products and risk management.

His Ph.D. thesis research was in the area of design and development of privacy and security enhanced protocols for decentralized networks, such as peer-to-peer networks and wireless ad hoc networks.

Qiang was a Francis Upton Fellow (2001-2005) and also a recipient of Microsoft Research Fellowship Award (2004-2006). He was a summer intern at Microsoft Research, in 2004 and 2005, where he worked on the design, implementation and evaluation of "Friends Troubleshooting Network", a privacy-preserving automatic peer-to-peer troubleshooting system. He also investigated the use of erasure resilient code in a peer-to-peer storage cloud in terms of data reliability, computational efficiency and security concerns. Qiang was a summer intern at Mistubishi Electric Research Labs in 2003, where he worked on the design of secure key establishment protocols for wireless sensor networks.

He earned his Ph.D. and M.A. degrees in Electrical Engineering, both from Princeton University, and the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering with distinction from Tsinghua University, P. R. China.
