Dr. ZHOU, Amelie Chi

BEng, MSE, PhD
Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science


Dr. Zhou received her Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in 2016. She received her MSE and BEng degrees from Beihang University in 2012 and 2009, respectively. She was a postdoc researcher in INRIA Rennes center (2016-2017) and a faculty member of Shenzhen University (2017-2023). Her research interests include parallel and distributed systems, cloud computing and high-performance computing. She has published more than 30 technical articles in refereed journals and conferences including SC, HPDC, ICS, ICDE, ICDCS, ICPP and TPDS. She has been actively serving the community by participating in the organizing/program committees for conferences including SC, HPDC, ICPP, Cluster and CIKM. She is also serving as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS) and an Editor for Future Generation Computer Systems (FGCS). She is the recipient of the IEEE-CS TCHPC Early Career Award and the ACM SIGHPC China Rising Star Award in 2021. She received the Shenzhen Young Scientist Award in 2023.

I am looking for PhD/Research Assistant/Intern students with an interest in high-performance computing and distributed data systems. Please contact me with your CV.
