Dartmouth College Associate Professor of Computer Science Xia Zhou has been awarded the ACM SIGMOBILE's RockStar Award. Edward Knightly, RockStar Award Committee Chair, said Zhou was recognized for "her outstanding early-career contributions and impact on our field: for multidisciplinary research examining unconventional wireless spectrum frequencies to build next-generation wireless systems, and spearheading the field of 'visible light sensing,' which turns the ubiquitous light around us into a powerful medium that integrates data communication and human behavioral sensing."

Zhou also won a Sloan Research Fellowship in computer science in 2017. "The DarkLight Rises: Visible Light Communication in the Dark," her co-authored paper on a new wireless communication technology, won the best video award at MobiCom 2016, the 22nd Annual International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking. The DarkLight technology uses short, nearly imperceptible light pulses to send information.
