Lei Jiao works on the management and the orchestration of telecommunication and Internet infrastructures, services, and applications, spanning edge computing, cloud computing, machine learning, network security, virtual reality, and social networks. In this context, he exploits mathematics and theories of optimization, control, learning, and mechanism design, and designs algorithms, often with provable performance guarantees or practical insights, to solve a variety of problems, including resource allocation, service placement, job scheduling, content caching, mobility support, energy efficiency, and economic incentives. He is also interested in building systems that incorporate novel algorithms and analytics.
