Biography

Prof. Guoliang Xing received the B.S. and M.S degrees from Xi’an Jiao Tong University, China, in 1998 and 2001, and the D.Sc. degree from Washington University in St. Louis, in 2006. He is currently a Professor in the Department of Information Engineering, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Previously, he was a faculty member at City University of Hong Kong and Michigan State University, U.S.

Professor Xing’s research lies at the intersection between systems, embedded AI, data/information processing algorithms, and domain sciences, with a focus on interdisciplinary applications in health, environment, and energy. His research group develops new technologies at the frontier of mobile health, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Internet of Things (IoT), wireless networks, security and privacy. Several mobile health technologies developed in his lab have won several Best App Awards at the MobiCom conference and been successfully transferred to the industry. Prof. Xing led the development of several large-scale cyber physical systems, including 20+ seismic monitoring systems that were field tested and deployed on two live volcanoes in South America. Since 2006, he has been awarded 2 Hong Kong CERG grants and 10 US NSF grants (8 as PI), including 4 large multi-institute grants from major NSF interdisciplinary programs on smart health, Cyber Physical Systems, and sustainability.

Prof. Xing is currently an Editor for ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks (TOSN), and has served as the Steering Committee member, General Chair, and TPC Co-Chair of several international conferences including IPSN – the IEEE/ACM’s premier conference on information processing in sensor systems, and RTSS – the IEEE’s premier conference on real-time systems.

He received the Withrow Distinguished Scholar Award from Michigan State University in 2014 and the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the US National Science Foundation in 2010. His group received two Best Paper Awards and five Best Paper Nominations from prestigious international conferences including ICNP, IPSN, and PerCom.
