Lei Jiao is a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oregon. His research has been supported by grants from the National Science Foundation, including the CAREER award, and the industry. His publications often appear in leading journals such as JSAC, ToN, TMC, and TPDS, and conferences such as INFOCOM, MOBIHOC, SECON, ICNP, ICDCS, and IPDPS. He was a recipient of the Ripple Faculty Fellowship, the Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs UK and Ireland Recognition Award, and the Best Paper Awards of IEEE CNS 2019 and IEEE LANMAN 2013. He has been on the technical program committees of conferences such as INFOCOM, MOBIHOC, ICDCS, TheWebConf, and IWQoS and has been a reviewer for many journals. He has also served as the program chair of multiple workshops with INFOCOM and ICDCS and as a guest editor of JSAC. Previously he worked at Nokia Bell Labs in Ireland. He completed the Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) degree in computer science (Informatik) at the University of Göttingen (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen), Germany, where his research was part of EU FP7 projects.
Dr. rer. nat., Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany, 2014
Lei Jiao researches large-scale edge computing and cloud computing, spanning their intersection and interaction with telecommunications (e.g., 5G/6G networks), AI (e.g., machine learning systems), energy (e.g., electric vehicles), cybersecurity (e.g., DDoS), and multimedia (e.g., virtual reality). His work exploits interdisciplinary methodologies of optimization, control, learning, and economics and investigates the efficiency, scalability, sustainability, and resilience of computer systems through modeling, design, theoretical derivations, and empirical experiments.
