Dr. Xiang-Yang Li has been Professor, (since 2012), an Associate Professor (since 2006) and Assistant Professor (from 2000 to 2006) of Department of Computer Science at the Illinois Institute of Technology. He was a visiting professor of Microsoft Research Asia from May, 2007 to August 2008. He was a distinguished visiting scientist at TNLIST (Tsinghua National Laboratory for Information Science and Technology), Tsinghua University from 2009-2011. He was also a visiting professor at HongKong Baptist University, and HongKong University of Science and Technology. He was named one of the two "Outstanding Overseas Young Researcher" by National Natural Science Foundation of China in 2008. Dr. Li received MS (2000) and PhD (2001) degree at Department of Computer Science from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He received a Bachelor degree at Department of Computer Science and Technology, and a minor Bachelor degree at Department of Business Management from Tsinghua University, P.R. China, both in 1995. He was a member of the gifted student class (with 20 students in total) in China prepared for the International Mathematics Olympics (IMO) from 1988 to 1990.
His research interests span the cyber-physical systems, sensor networks, wireless ad hoc networks, social networks, game theory, computational geometry, and cryptography and network security. He has published more than 150 conference papers and about 85 journal articles. His publications include six papers at ACM MobiCom (from 2004 to 2009), five papers at ACM MobiHoc, about 30 papers at IEEE INFOCOM, more than dozen papers at IEEE Transaction on Parallel and Distributed Systems, and more than 5 papers in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking. For more information about the list of papers and book chapters by Prof. Li, please see http://www.cs.iit.edu/~xli/publications-select.htm. He graduated a number of PhD students since 2004, and several of them are associate/assistant professors now. His research has been supported by NSF USA, HongKong RGC, and NSF China (as PI or Co-PI, or core team member).

Dr. Li served various positions (as steering committee member, chairs, and TPC members) at numerous international conferences. He is a co-chair of Algorithm Aspect in Information Management conference 2007, and 2011, and a co-chair of the ACM FOWANC workshop (Foundation of Wireless Ad-Hoc Networking and Computing) 2008, TPC co-chair of several conferences. Dr. Li has served as TPC member of numerous conferences, including ACM Mobihoc, ACM MobiCom, IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE ICC, IEEE ICDCS, IEEE ICPP, IEEE MASS and so on. Dr. Li has been invited to serve on the panel and/or review research proposals for National Science Foundation (US), National Science Foundation of China, and RGC HongKong. Dr. Li is an editor for IEEE Transaction of Parallel and Distributed Systems (2010 to present), IEEE Transaction of Mobile Computing (2011 to present), editor of "Networks: An International Journal" (2009 to present), and editor of "Ad Hoc & Sensor Wireless Networks: An International Journal" (2005 to present). He has co-organized several special issues of several journals, such as ACM MONET and IEEE Journal of Selected Area in Communications. He recently published a monograph "Wireless Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks: Theory and Applications", by Cambridge University Press. He served as area editor of the book "Encyclopedia of Algorithms", edited by Ming-Yang Kao, Springer publisher. He also co-edited a book "Sensor and Ad-Hoc Networks : Theoretical and Algorithmic Aspects". For more information of research and projects by Dr. Li, please see http://www.cs.iit.edu/~xli.
