Dr. Yulei Wu is a Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Exeter. He received his Ph.D. degree in Computing and Mathematics and B.Sc. (First Class Hons) degree in Computer Science from the University of Bradford, UK, in 2010 and 2006, respectively. His main research focuses on Future Internet Architecture, Wireless Networks and Mobile Computing, Cloud Computing, Big Data for Networking, and Performance Modelling and Analysis. 

Before joining the University of Exeter, he was working as an Associate Professor in the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). During his stay in CAS, he mainly worked in the field of Internet Architecture. He was the Principal Investigator of a National Natural Science Foundation of China (NFSC) project on Intelligent Content Request and Dissemination Technologies, and was the Co-Investigator of a National High-tech R&D ("863") project on Virtual Router, a National Key Technologies R&D project on IPv6, and a CAS Strategic Priority Research project on Future Internet Research Testbed. He was elected as a Member of Youth Innovation Promotion Association CAS.

His recent research has been supported by Industrial KTP, University's Innovation Platform (Link Fund) and Outward Mobility Academic Fellowship. He has published over 50 research papers in prestigious international journals, including IEEE Communications Magazine, IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, IEEE Transactions on Communications, IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications, and Applications, and ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, and at reputable international conferences. He was the recipient of the Best Paper Awards from IEEE SmartCity-2015, IEEE CSE-2009, and ICAC-2008 international conferences. He is currently supervising/co-supervising three PhD students on High Mobility Wireless Communications, Distributed Big Data Processing and Analysis, and Next Generation Internet Architecture.

Dr. Wu serves as a Member of Editorial Board for Computer Networks (Elsevier), an Associate Editor for Journal of Internet Technology, as well as a leading Guest Editor for Computer Networks (Elsevier), Multimedia Tools and Applications (Springer), Wireless Personal Communications (Springer), Security and Communication Networks (Wiley), EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking (Springer), and Journal of Internet Technology. He is the Founding Co-Chair of International Workshop on Wireless Networks and Multimedia (WNM), has been the Chair or Vice-Chair of 30 international conferences/workshops, and has served as the Program Committee Member of more than 80 professional conferences/workshops. He was awarded the Outstanding Leadership Awards from IEEE ISPA-2013 and IEEE TrustCom-2012, and the Outstanding Service Awards from IEEE HPCC-2012, IEEE CIT-2010, IEEE ScalCom-2010. He is a Member of IEEE and ACM, and a Fellow of HEA.
