Research interests
"Personal communication is only going to get bigger and better as technology advances - it was just starting to get noticed when I began my studies and it has really taken off since," said Cheng Li. Since he began the study of radio communications engineering, Mr. Li has been researching mobile and wireless communications systems. The focus of his doctoral work has been on designing the architecture for a multicast packet switching system for broadband communications. He plans to continue work on this switch architecture and on applications for wireless communication networks after his doctoral work wraps up.

Experience
While studying in China, Mr. Li worked as a research assistant in the Communication Research Centre at Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT). Following graduation he was employed as a communications and electronics engineer with Baosteel in Shanghai, and a network system group manager with Nokia China Investment Co. Working in various aspects of the communications industry has given him a unique insight into new technology and its potential applications. Since coming to Memorial in 1999, Mr. Li has worked in the Faculty's Centre for Digital Hardware Application Research (CDHAR).

Background
Prior to starting his doctoral studies here at Memorial, Mr. Li received a bachelor's degree in communication engineering from HIT in China. He then went on to complete a master's degree in telecommunication engineering at the same institution, focusing on trunked mobile communications systems and switching technologies.
