I, Lei Shu (舒磊) received the B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from South Central University for Nationalities, China, in 2002 and the M.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from Kyung Hee University, Korea, in 2005 and the Ph.D. degree in Digital Enterprise Research Institute, from National University of Ireland, Galway, Ireland, in 2010. Until March 2012, I was a Specially Assigned Researcher in Department of Multimedia Engineering, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, Osaka University, Japan. I am a senior member of IEEE, IEEE IES, IEEE ComSoc, a member of ACM. Currently, I am serving as 1) Distinguished Professor, Nanjing Agricultural University, China; 2) Lincoln Professor and Ph.D. Supervisor, the University of Lincoln, UK (link); 3) Director, NAU-Lincoln Joint Research Center of Intelligent Engineering. I am the founder of NAU-Lincoln Joint Research Center of Intelligent Engineering (website). My research interests include: Wireless Sensor Networks, Multimedia Communication, Middleware, Fault Diagnosis, and Security. I have published over 500 papers in related conferences, journals, and books in the area of sensor networks. Currently, my H-index is more than 61 and i10-index is more than 240 in Google Citation (Google Scholar). Total citation of my papers by other people is more than 13300 times. I developed an open source wireless sensor networks simulator ‘NetTopo’ to evaluate & demonstrate my algorithms. NetTopo, has been widely used by international researchers and students. I had been awarded the MASS 2009 IEEE TCs Travel Grant and the Outstanding Leadership Award of EUC 2009 as Publicity Chair, the Globecom 2010, ICC 2013, ComManTel 2014, WICON 2016, and SigTelCom 2017 Best Paper Award, the 2017 IEEE Systems Journal Best Paper Award (2 out of 254), the 2017 Journal of Network and Computer Applications Best Research Paper Award, the 2018 IEEE Systems Journal Best Paper Award (5 out of 598), the 2020 IEEE Systems Journal Best Paper Award (7 out of 793) and Outstanding Service Award of IUCC 2012, ComcomAP 2014, Outstanding Associate Editor Award of 2017, 2018 IEEE Access. I also received a few more awards from Chinese Government as: Top Level Talents in "Sailing Plan" of Guangdong Province, China, Outstanding Young Professor of Guangdong Province, China.
