Sung-Ju Lee received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2000. He spent 12.5 years at Hewlett-Packard Company as a Principal Research Scientist and Distinguished Mobility Architect. He was then a Principal Member of Technical Staff at the CTO Office of Narus, Inc (now part of Symantec). In 2015, he joined KAIST where he is a KAIST Endowed Chair Professor and leads the Networking & Mobile Systems Lab. Dr. Lee has published over 100 technical papers in peer-reviewed journals and conferences. His papers are well-cited, with his publications receiving a total of over 15,000 citations and his h-index is 52, according to Google Scholar. In addition, he has 51 granted US patents. He has published in top conference venues such as MobiCom, INFOCOM, CoNext, SenSys, UbiComp, UIST, CSCW, ICDCS, NDSS, and IMC. He won the HP CEO Innovation Award in 2010 as part of the mega-scale wireless sensor networking team. This award recognizes the people behind the most innovative products that HP has brought to market and the winners are nominated by executives in HP businesses. He is also the winner of the test-of-time paper award at ACM WiNTECH 2016 and the best paper award at IEEE ICDCS 2015. He was the General Chair of ACM MobiCom 2014 and co-TPC Chair of IEEE INFOCOM 2016 and ACM MobiCom 2021. He has been an IEEE Fellow since 2013 and an ACM Distinguished Scientist since 2011.
