Weisi graduated from the University of Cambridge with MEng, MA, PhD (2011) degrees. His research expertise is in Information (signals, data, communications) and Networks (heterogeneous, complex, dynamic, multi-scale). The application areas range from telecommunications to smart cities to nano-machines. He is currently the joint-coordinator of the Cities research theme at School of Engineering and holds visiting positions at New York University and Shanghai University. During the last decade, Weisi has spent a number of years working in and with industry. Over the past few years, Weisi has published over 60 IEEE papers, and is a regular TPC member on flagship IEEE conferences.
In his private life, his interests are: travelling, photography, philosophy, and sports. He has also worked in UNHCR refugee camps in Africa. He was part of the victorious Cambridge Varsity archery team (2002), and served as badminton captains at both the University of Cambridge and Sheffield. He has completed both the full London (2007) and Sahara (2010) 42km marathons.
I am generally interested in the physical laws which govern multi-scale (macro to nano) communication systems and networks, and it's intersection with cities and social physics. I am part of the core team in an alliance of smart city research universities worldwide: (NYU, Warwick, Toronto, CMU, Mumbai, KCL).
To that end, I am actively involved in developing appropirate data collection and analytics technologies for smart cities, as well as novel communication systems for extreme and hostile environments.
My current research areas are as follows:
[Large-Scale Network Modeling]: dynamic heterogeneous networks, graph theory (stochastic geometry & complex network), cellular networks (4G/5G), IoT and M2M systems, energy-cost-spectral efficiency;
[Nano-Scale Communications]: system desnign, channel models, signal processing, biological applications, hostile environment testing;
[Mobile Sensing & Big Data]: human and social dynamics, smart city intelligence, social media data analytics, IoT-M2M service layer business models, smartphone sensing;
