BioKuang Xu was born in Suzhou, China. He received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering (2009) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois, USA, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (2014) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Microsoft Research-Inria Joint Center in Paris, France (2014-2015).
His research interests lie in the fields of applied probability theory, optimization, and operations research, seeking to understand fundamental properties and design principles of large-scale stochastic systems, with applications in queueing networks, healthcare, privacy and statistical learning theory. He has received several awards including a First Place in INFORMS George E. Nicholson Student Paper Competition, a Best Paper Award, as well as a Kenneth C. Sevcik Outstanding Student Paper Award from ACM SIGMETRICS.
