Wanyang Dai
Nanjing University, China

Prof. Wanyang Dai received the B.S. degree in mathematics from Nanjing Normal University,
Nanjing, China, in 1985 and the M.S. degree in operations research and control theory from
Shanghai University, Shanghai, China, in 1988 and the Ph.D degree in applied mathematics
jointly with industrial engineering and systems engineering from Georgia Institute of Tech-
nology, Atlanta, GA, U.S.A., in 1996, where he worked on stochastics and applied probability
concerning network performance modeling and analysis, algorithm design and implementa-
tion via stochastic diffusion approximation.

He was an assistant professor in Probability and Statistics Group of Mathematics Depart-
ment in Nanjing University, Nanjing, China, from 1988 to 1992, where he mainly worked on
stochastic adaptive control and system identification. He was an 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
a principal investigator and developer of several projects in telecommunication network ar-
chitecture and design, network performance and financial engineering, operating system and
database development, etc. He was an associate professor from 1999-2004 and is a full profes-
sor since 2004 in Nanjing University, where his research includes stochastic processes related
optimization and optimal control, mathematical finance, admission/scheduling/routing pro-
tocols and performance analysis/optimization for cloud computing and the next generation of
wireless and wireline communication systems. Currently, he is on the Editorial Board of Inter-
national Journal of Wireless Engineering and Technology and is a TPC member of IEEE/EII
2011 World Congress of Engineering and Technology and 2011 International Conference on
Applied and Engineering Mathematics.

In addition, he also held several visiting positions including a visiting scholar in Academy
of Mathematics and Systems Science of China, Beijing, China, in 2001, a Long Term Partic-
ipant 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, and a visiting professor in Department
of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management in Chinese University of Hong Kong,
Hong Kong, China, in 2007.
