Biography:

John Chi-Shing Lui was born in Hong Kong and is currently a full professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from UCLA. When he was a Ph.D student at UCLA, he worked as a research intern in the IBM T. J. Watson Research Laboratory. After his graduation, he joined the IBM Almaden Research Laboratory/San Jose Laboratory and participated in various research and development projects on file systems and parallel I/O architectures. He later joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He has been a visiting professor in computer science departments at UCLA, Columbia University, University of Maryland at College Park, Purdue University, University of Massachusetts at Amherst and Universit degli Studi di Torino in Italy. Currently, he is leading a group of research students and post-docs in the Advanced Networking & System Research Group, working on some exciting research problems which span both in systems, networks and theory/mathematics. His current research interests are in Internet, network sciences with large data implications (e.g., online social networks), machine learning on large data analytics, network/system security (e.g., cloud security, mobile security, ...etc), network economics, cloud computing, large scale distributed systems and performance evaluation theory. John is also an active consultant to industry, believing that it is an effective mean to do technology transfer, and a wonderful way to learn about the real and relevant problems. John has been serving in the editorial board of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, Journal of Performance Evaluation, Journal of Network Science and International Journal of Network Security. John serves as reviewer and panel member for NSF, Canadian Research Council and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). John served as the chairman of the CSE Department from 2005-2011 (and lessons learned). He received various departmental teaching awards and the CUHK Vice-Chancellor's Exemplary Teaching Award. John also received the CUHK Faculty of Engineering Research Excellence Award (2011-2012). John is a co-recipient of the best paper award in the IFIP WG 7.3 Performance 2005, IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2006, and SIMPLEX 2013. He is an elected member of the IFIP WG 7.3, Fellow of ACM, Fellow of IEEE, Senior Research Fellow of the Croucher Foundation and is currently the chair of the ACM SIGMETRICS. His personal interests include films and general reading.
