Xiaojun Lin received his B.S. from Zhongshan University,Guangzhou, China, in 1994, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, in 2000 and 2005, respectively. He is currently an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University. Dr. Lin’s research interests are in the analysis, control and optimization of large and complex networked systems, spanning both communication networks and power systems. He received the IEEE INFOCOM 2008 best paper award and 2005 best paper of the year award from Journal of Communications and Networks. His paper was also one of two runner-up papers for the best-paper award at IEEE INFOCOM 2005. He received the NSF CAREER award in 2007. He was the Workshop co-chair for IEEE GLOBECOM 2007, the Panel co-chair for WICON 2008, the TPC co-chair for ACM MobiHoc 2009, the Mini-Conference co-chair for IEEE INFOCOM 2012, the Workshop chair for WiOpt 2014, and the Publication chair for WiOpt 2016. He is currently serving as an Area Editor for (Elsevier) Computer Networks journal, and has served as a Guest Editor for (Elsevier) Ad Hoc Networks journal and an Associate Editor for IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking.
