Dr. Geoffrey Ye Li is a Full Professor and the Director of the Information Transmission and Processing (ITP) Lab in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia. He is currently focusing on machine learning and statistical signal processing for wireless communications. His research topics in the past couple decades include machine learning for wireless signal detection, big data processing for wireless networks, cognitive radios, cross-layer optimization for spectrum- and energy-efficient wireless networks, OFDM and MIMO techniques for wireless systems, and blind signal processing. In these areas, he has published over 250 journal papers in addition to over 40 granted patents and many conference papers. His publications have been cited over 40,000 times from Google Scholar and he has been recognized as the World’s Most Influential Scientific Mind, also known as a Highly-Cited Researcher, by Thomson Reuters almost every year. He was awarded IEEE Fellow for his contributions to signal processing for wireless communications in 2006. He also won various awards and recognitions from IEEE Signal Processing, Communications, and Vehicular Technology Societies and Georgia Institute of Technology. He is active in professional societies.
Before joining Georgia Tech in 2000, he was a Senior and then a Principal Technical Staff Member with AT&T Labs - Research in New Jersey, USA.
He has been involved in editorial activities of many technical journals, including the founding Editor-in-Chief of IEEE JSAC Special Series on Machine Learning in Communications and Networking. He has also organized and chaired many international conferences in IEEE ComSoc, SPS, and VTS.
He received his B.S.E. and M.S.E. degrees in 1983 and 1986, respectively, from the Department of Wireless Engineering, Nanjing Institute of Technology, Nanjing, China, and his Ph.D. degree in 1994 from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Auburn University, Alabama.
