Jia Zhang is an Associate Research Professor in the area of Software Engineering at
Carnegie Mellon University’s Silicon Valley campus. Her recent research interests center
on service oriented computing, with a focus on collaborative scientific workflows,
Internet of Things, service oriented architecture, and cloud-based big data management.
She has co-authored one textbook titled "Services Computing" and has published
over 120 refereed journal papers, book chapters, and conference papers. She is now an
Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC) and of International
Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR), and Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of
Services Computing (IJSC). Zhang is Program Vice Chair of IEEE International Conference
on Web Services (ICWS). 

Previously at the Northern Illinois University as a tenured Associate Professor of
computer science, Zhang taught software engineering and databases and opened two
graduate-level courses based on her co-authored textbook "Services Computing."
Zhang also has nine years of architect and technical lead experience in the software
industry. 

Zhang earned her Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Illinois at Chicago,
and her M.S. and B.S. in computer science from Nanjing University, China.
