Lei Jiao is an assistant professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science in the University of Oregon. Previously, he was a member of technical staff at Bell Labs in Dublin, Ireland in 2016. He received the Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) degree in computer science (Informatik) from the University of Göttingen (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen), Germany in 2014. He also worked as a researcher at IBM Research in Beijing, China in 2010. His research has been published in journals such as JSAC, ToN, and TMC, and in conferences such as MOBIHOC, SIGMETRICS, INFOCOM, ICNP, ICDCS, SECON, and IPDPS. He has served as the TPC chair of multiple workshops in conjunction with INFOCOM and ICDCS, and as a TPC member of many conferences such as MOBIHOC, INFOCOM (Distinguished Member), ICDCS, IWQoS, and ICC. He is currently a guest editor for IEEE JSAC Series on Network Softwarization & Enablers and an associate editor of IEEE Access.

Research Interests

Lei Jiao works on the management and orchestration of telecommunication and computer network 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 auctions, and designs algorithms, often with provable performance guarantees or practical insights, to solve a range 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.
