Currently I am an Associate Professor at Dalian University of Technology.  I obtained my PhD degree from Australian National University (ANU), and my PhD thesis is entitled “Cost-Aware Resource Allocation and Provisioning in Cloud Networks”. Before joining ANU, I received my Bachelor and Master degree from Dalian University of Technology in China in 2008 and 2011. I was a Research Associate at University College London (UCL) from 2016 to 2017.

Dr. Xu’s research interests include mobile edge computing, fog computing, big data processing, network function virtualization, cloud computing, software-defined networking, machine learning, routing protocol design for wireless networks, algorithmic game theory, and optimization problems. Dr. Xu has published over 60 high-quality papers in top venues, such as IEEE TPDS, IEEE TC, ACM/IEEE ToN, IEEE TMC, INFOCOM, ICDCS, ACM ICPP, and etc. His research is funded mainly by many projects including EU H2020 projects, NSFC projects, and industry projects. He is the “Xinghai Scholar” of Dalian University of Technology.
