Short Bio

Dr. Weisong Shi is a Professor of Computer Science at Wayne State University. There he directs the Mobile and Internet SysTems Laboratory (MIST) and co-directs the Laboratory of Sustainable Computing (LaST) and the Wayne Wireless Health Initiative, investigating performance, trust, power- and energy-efficiency issues of networked computer systems and applications. Dr. Shi received his B. E. from Xidian University in 1995, and Ph.D. degree from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2000, both in Computer Engineering. He authored one book, edited one book, published over 140 peer-reviewed publications cited by 3000+ times (H-index: 30), received research support from and consulted for a variety of governmental and industrial organizations, such as National Science Foundation, Department of Veteran Affairs, Air Force Research Laboratory, Gates Foundation, Swedish Research Council, Michigan Life Science Corridor, Chrysler and so on. In addition to publications, Dr. Shi's group has released several software artifacts that are widely used by the community, including CloudAligner (downloaded 1200+ times), JIAJIA, pTop and SPAN/Safari. He has chaired several conferences and workshops, and served on technical program committees of numerous international conferences.  He is the chair of the IEEE CS Technical Committee on the Internet, and serves on the editorial board of IEEE Internet Computing, Elsevier Sustainable Computing, Journal of Computer Science and Technology (JCST) and International Journal of Sensor Networks. He is a recipient of the National Outstanding Ph.D. dissertation award of China (2002), the NSF CAREER award (2007), Wayne State University Career Development Chair award (2009), and the Best Paper award of ICWE’04,  IEEE IPDPS’05, HPCChina'12 and IEEE IISWC'12. He is a senior member of the IEEE and ACM, a member of the USENIX.
