Biography:
Dr. Bo Ji received his B.E. and M.E. degrees in Information Science and Electronic Engineering from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, in 2004 and 2006, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA, in 2012. Since Fall 2014, Dr. Ji has been with Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Temple University, where he is currently an Assistant Professor. He is also a faculty member of the Center for Networked Computing (CNC) at Temple University. Prior to joining Temple University, he was a Senior Member of Technical Staff with AT&T Labs, San Ramon, CA, from January 2013 to June 2014. His research interests are in the modeling, analysis, control, and optimization of complex networked systems, such as communication networks, information-update systems, cloud/datacenter networks, and cyber-physical systems. Applying statistical and machine learning to networking research is his recent interest. Dr. Ji received National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award and NSF CISE Research Initiation Initiative (CRII) Award both in 2017.
