Weisi graduated from the University of Cambridge with MEng, MA, PhD (2011) degrees. His research is at the intersection between mobile big data, signal processing, and network theory. 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. Over the past 5 years, Weisi has published over 50 IEEE papers, and is the winner of several academic awards. His research on energy efficient networks and molecular communications has been recently covered by the IEEE, IET, Wall Street Journal, the Economist, and Wired. During the last decade, Weisi has spent a number of years working in industry. He is the main author of cellular network simulator (VCEsim).
In his private life, his interests are: travelling, photography, philosophy, sports, and charity. 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 a mobile data, signal processing, and network theory researcher. 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 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), 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;
