Hi. I am senior lecturer Xinlu Li [李新路], member of the Institute of Applied Optimization [应用优化研究所] of the Faculty of Computer Science and Technology [计算机科学与技术系] of the Hefei University [合肥学院]. While working at this institute, I am currently completing my PhD in Computer Science under the supervision of Dr. Fred Mtenzi and Dr. Brian Keegan at the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) in Dublin, Ireland. I received my M.Sc. from Anhui University [安徽大学], Hefei, Anhui, China in 2009. My research is focused on energy efficient routing protocol design for large-scale Wireless Sensor Networks based on Swarm Intelligence Algorithms.
