Jie Liu Senior Researcher, Microsoft Research
Talk Title: "Low Energy and Flexible GPS Sensing Through Cloud Offloading"
Bio: Jie Liu is a Principal Researcher and a Research Manager at Microsoft Research-NExT, leading Project Vesta, MSR’s Venture on Embedded Sensing Technologies and Applications (previously known as the Sensing and Energy Research Group — SERG). His group conducts fundamental and systems research on sensing and energy-efficient computing.
His personal research interests root in understanding and managing the physical properties of computing. Examples include timing, location, energy, and the awareness of and impact on the physical world. He worked on actor-oriented modeling, simulation, & programming models, low power and networked sensing, system resource management & control, mobile context extraction & management, and novel mobile & cloud applications. His recent projects range from sensor networks, wearable devices, mobile computing, to data centers.
Before joining MSR in May 2004, he was a researcher at Palo Alto Research Center (formerly Xerox PARC). Since 2008, he also holds an adjunct professorship (Foreign PhD Advisor) at Harbin Institute of Technology, China. He got his Ph.D. degree from EECS, UC Berkeley in 2001; and received his Master (1996) and Bachelor (1993) degrees from Department of Automation, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China.
