Dr. rer. nat., Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany, 2014


Lei Jiao is an assistant professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Oregon. He worked as a member of technical staff at Nokia Bell Labs in Dublin, Ireland in 2016. He received the Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) degree in computer science (Informatik) from University of Göttingen (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen), Germany in 2014. He was also a researcher at IBM Research in Beijing, China in 2010. His research has been published in journals such as IEEE/ACM ToN, IEEE JSAC, and IEEE TMC, and in conferences such as ACM MOBIHOC, ACM SIGMETRICS, IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE ICNP, IEEE ICDCS, IEEE SECON, and IEEE IPDPS. He has served as the TPC chair of the HotPOST workshops in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM and IEEE ICDCS, and as a TPC member of a number of conferences such as ACM MOBIHOC, IEEE INFOCOM (Distinguished Member), IEEE ICDCS, IEEE/ACM IWQoS, IFIP Networking, and IEEE ICC. He is a guest editor for IEEE JSAC Series on Network Softwarization & Enablers and an associate editor of IEEE Access. He is the recipient of the Best Paper Awards of IEEE CNS 2019 and IEEE LANMAN 2013, and the 2016 Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs UK & Ireland Recognition Award.

Research Interests

Lei Jiao is broadly interested in the mathematics and the algorithms for systems and networks. He explores and exploits optimization, control, learning, mechanism design, and game theory to manage and orchestrate large-scale distributed computing and communication infrastructures, services, applications, and devices, spanning edge computing, cloud computing, machine learning, network security, virtual reality, and social networks. He researches into a range of problems, including but not limited to resource allocation, service placement, job scheduling, data caching, mobility support, energy efficiency, and economic incentives.
