Biography:
Wanyang Dai received his Ph.D degree in applied mathematics jointly with industrial engi- neering and systems engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, U.S.A., in 1996, where he worked on stochastics and applied probability concerning network perfor- mance modeling and analysis, algorithm design and implementation via stochastic di®usion approximation. The breakthrough results and methodologies developed in his thesis were cited, used, and claimed as \contemporaneous and independent" achievements by some other subsequent breakthrough papers that were presented as \45 minute invited talk in probability and statistics" in International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) 1998, which is the most privilege honor in the mathematical society. The designed ¯nite element-Galerkin algorithm to compute the stationary distributions of re°ecting Brownian motions (the weak solutions of general dimensional partial di®erential equations) is also well-known to the related ¯elds.
He was a MTS (permanent) in End-to-End Network Architecture Department of AT&T Bell Labs and then (Alcatel-)Lucent Bell Labs/Network Systems, Atlanta, GA and Warren, NJ, U.S.A., from 1996-1999, where he was principal investigators and developers of several projects in telecommunication network architecture and design, network performance and ¯nancial engineering, operating system and database development to support various intel- ligent engines/models for strategy planning and big data analysis in a \Plug-in and Play" manner, with some (nowadays called cloud computing) project won \Technology Transfer".
He is a full professor since 2004 in Nanjing University, where his research includes stochas- tic processes related optimization and optimal control, admission/scheduling/routing pro- tocols and performance analysis/optimization for cloud computing and the next genera- tion of wireless and wireline communication systems, forward/backward stochastic (ordi- nary/partial) di®erential equations and their applications to queueing systems, stochastic di®erential games, communication networks, ¯nancial engineering. His \in°uential" papers are published in \big name" journals including Operations Research and Queueing Systems.
He is Editors-in-Chief of International Journal of Information Engineering, Journal of Advances in Applied Mathematics, editors or members of editorial boards of over 30 inter- national journals ranging from pure mathematics to its applications, General Chairs, invited plenary/keynote speakers, TPC members of over 30 IEEE and other international confer- ences, member/group leader of judge committee in mathematics for National Natural Science Awards of China, Vice Presidents and Standing Directors of several probability, statistics, and operations research societies.
He was a visiting scholar in Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science of China, Beijing, China, in 2001, a Long Term Participant of IMA Annual Program of Probability and Statistics in Complex Systems: Financial Engineering, Communication Networks and Genomics in Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications (IMA), Minneapolis, U.S.A., in 2004, a visiting professor in Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Manage- ment in Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China, in 2007.
