Professor Sun Chengzheng
School of Computer Engineering, Nanyang Technological University Singapore
Sun Chengzheng (in Chinese Pin Yin) or Chengzheng Sun (in
English) is a Professor in the School of Computer Engineering at Nanyang
Technological University in Singapore. He studied wireless telecommunication
technology and graduated from North-East University (NEU), Shenyang, China (1973
- 1976). He worked as an electronic engineer at Chengdu Exploration Company in
the Department of Steel and Iron Industry in China (1976-1979). He obtained an
MPhil degree in computer engineering from East-China Institute of Computing
Technology (ECICT), Shanghai, China (1979 - 1982). He worked as a lecturer in
the Department of Computer Science and Technology at the University of
Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC), Chengdu, China (1983-1984).
He obtained a Ph.D degree in computer engineering from National University of
Defense Technology (NUDT) , Changsha, China (1984-1987). From Jan. 1988 to May
1993, he worked as a research scientist and a senior software engineer in
University of Amsterdam (UvA), Philips Research Labs Eindhoven , and the ACE
software company in Amsterdam , The Netherlands. He received a second Ph.D
degree in computer science from University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 1992.
From May 1993 to June 2005, he worked as a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Associate
Professor, Professor and Chair of Internet Computing (since 1999) in the School
of Information and Communication Technology at Griffith University in Brisbane,
Queensland, Australia. He joined Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, on
July 1 2005.
Professor Sun's current research focuses on collaborative Internet/cloud computing, which lies at the intersections of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), distributed systems and computer communication networks, human-computer interaction, and software engineering. Major applications of his research include: collaborative productivity systems (e.g. collaborative word processors, slide authoring and presentation tools, spreadsheets, web page design tools, graphics drawing tools, and image/photo editors), collaborative design and engineering (e.g. collaborative Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Software Engineering (CASE) systems), and collaborative virtual environments (e.g. collaborative distributed simulation, virtual enterprise, and network-based multi-user games).
Professor Sun is on the Editorial Advisory Board of Journal of Computer Supported Cooperative Work (JCSCW) by Kluwer Academic Publishers. Professor Sun holds Adjunct Professorship positions at Griffith University (Australia), National University of Defense Technology (China), and Fudan University (China).
