Weisi graduated from the University of Cambridge with MEng (2005), MA, Ph.D. degrees (2011). His research is underpinned by fundamental breakthroughs in network science, communication theory, and signal processing. He is PI to £2.7m funding, has published over 140 papers, and is an IET Innovation Award winner and been twice a runner-up in the Bell Labs Prize. He is currently editor on 3 IEEE & 1 Royal Society journals and track chair for IEEE ICC 2020 - Big Data.
In his private life, his experiences include working in an UNHCR refugee camp in Africa, being part of the victorious Cambridge Varsity archery team, solo climbed two of the highest sub-continent peaks, and served as badminton captains at both Cambridge and Sheffield. He has also completed the full London (2007) and full Sahara (2010) marathons.
Data-Embedded-Networks (DEN) Lab
Research Vision: as human society is becoming increasingly inter-connected, it faces serious challenges and our connected resilience is not well understood. At the heart of my research is the attempt to discover and model latent relationships between connectivity, complexity, and resilience for coupled social-physical systems.
Track-Record: Since 2012, I have been building an award-winning group (DEN Lab). It has members in the Alan Turing Institute, the global alliance for urban science (CUSP), and the EPSRC Doctoral Training Centre in Urban Science (WISC).
My team members work with a variety of commercial and government bodies and contribute scientific evidence to expand the impact of our research.
Research Areas: expertise, latest key papers, team members, and selected active grants are given below:
- Machine Learning in 5G Networks: reinforcement learning1a,1b, consumer data2a,2b,2c, peer-peer networks3
- Dynamics of Complex Networks: resilience4, graph signal processing5, critical infrastructure6a,6b,6c, urban analytics7a,7b, conflict modelling8a,8b,8c,8d
- Molecular Communications: signal propagation and detection9a,9b, experimentation10a,10b, network analysis11a, applications12a
- Research Fellows (6): W. Qi, G. Moutsinas, L. Lin, S. Chotvijt, 2 recruiting
- Ph.D. Students (12): G. Mosquera, A. Alturki, M. Abbaszadeh, A. Sonea, Y. Liu, Z. Wei, M. Mazzamurro, J. Wang, M. Zou, C. Li, S. Sun, P. Strong
- External Ph.D. Students (2): L. Zha (QMUL), T. Sajjad (York)
