Biography

Dr. Yingshu Li received her Ph.D. and M.S. degrees from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. She received her B.S. degree from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Beijing Institute of Technology, China. Dr. Li is currently an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at Georgia State University.

Dr. Li’s research focuses on the design and analysis of algorithms and protocols for wireless ad hoc networks, wireless sensor networks, and social networks. Her research topics include designing algorithms for data acquisition, approximate computation and quality control of big sensory data, constructing connected-dominating-set-based backbones in energy-harvest sensor networks, developing coverage algorithms in wireless sensor networks, and designing privacy-preserving strategies for social networks. Dr Li’s research has been supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Science Foundation of China (NSFC), the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) of South Korea, and GSU internal grants. Dr. Li is the recipient of an NSF CAREER award. Dr. Li has been serving as an editor for several international journals and providing referee service for many international journals and conferences.
