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, dynamic, resilience). The multi-scale application areas range from connected interacting cities to telecommunication networks to the Internet of Nano Things. He is currently an exchange associate professor at New York University, core member of EPSRC DTC - WISC, and joint-coordinator of the Cities research theme in Engineering. Weisi is an innovative researcher and engineering professional, with over 12 years experience in both academia and industry. His research in networks, complexity, and information have won numerous international awards and he currently leads a team of 12 researchers to achieve new breakthroughs bridging engineering, computer science, and social physics. Weisi has seen significant success over recent years: £1.7m funding as PI to host, published over 100 papers (55 journal papers with total IF 180+), and accumulated over 1400 citations (h-index 18). He holds an IET Innovation Award and been twice a runner-up in the Bell Labs Prize. He is a Turing Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute.
