Dr Wen Hu will be giving a CSIC Seminar on Compressive Sensor Networks and their Applications on Thursday 22 August 2013, 4pm in Lecture Room 6.

Dr. Hu is a Visiting Researcher at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS). His current position is Principal Research Scientist at CSIRO Computational Informatics where he leads a talented research team working in pervasive information systems at Autonomous Systems Laboratory. Much of Dr Hu’s research career has focused on novel applications, low-power communications and security issues in sensor networks and pervasive computing systems. He has recently become interested in the applications of compressive sensing in Internet of Things (IoT).

Dr Hu publishes regularly in top rated sensor network venues such as ACM /IEEE IPSN , ACM SenSys, EWSN , ACM transactions on Sensor Networks (TOSN), proceedings of the IEEE , and ad-hoc networks. Dr Hu received his PhD from the University of New South Wales (UNSW), in Computer Science and Engineering. He is a recipient of the prestigious CSIRO Office of Chief Executive (OCE), Julius Career Award (2012 – 2015) and CSIRO OCE postdoctoral grant. Dr Hu holds adjunct Associate Professor positions at Queensland University of Technologies, University of Queensland, and University of New South Wales. He is a senior member of ACM and IEEE , and serves on the organising and program committees of networking conferences/workshops including ACM /IEEE IPSN , ACM SenSys, ACM MobiSys, IEEE LCN , IEEE ICC , IEEE WCNC , IEEE DCOSS , IEEE GlobeCom, IEEE PIMRC , and IEEE VTC .

Dr Hu will speak about the way sensor networks have revolutionised the way we observe the environment. In his talk he will introduce a few sensor networks deployed by CSIRO , which include a micro-climate and multimedia sensor network deployed in a National Park and a continental flying fox tracking network. He will also focus on recent work in structure monitoring with sensor networks.

This talk is part of the Centre for Smart Infrastructure & Construction series.
