Dr. Hong-Ning Dai (Henry) obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and a D.Eng. in Computer Technology Application from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Before joining HKBU, he worked in the Department of Information Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Macau University of Science and Technology, and the Department of Computing and Decision Sciences at Lingnan University, Hong Kong. He has published more than 200 papers in referred journals and conferences, including Proceedings of the IEEE, IEEE JSAC, IEEE TMC, IEEE TPDS, IEEE Trans. on Computer, IEEE TDSC, IEEE TKDE, IEEE TNNLS, IEEE/ACM, ICSE, ACM/IEEE ASE, IEEE INFOCOM, AAAI, ACM CSUR, ACM TOSEM, IEEE Communications Surveys & Tutorials, etc. He is a senior member of ACM, IEEE, and EAI. He has served as an associate editor for IEEE Communications Survey and Tutorials, IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems, Ad Hoc Networks, and Connection Science. He has served as a PC member of top-tier conferences, including WWW'24, SDM'24, ASE'23, KDD'23, CIKM'19, ICPADS'19. He has also served as general chair/PC chair of many international conferences.

Dr. Henry Dai is recruiting self-motivated Ph.D./RA/Post-doc with a strong background in computer science, electronic engineering, or applied mathematics, working in fields including (but not limited to) security and reliability of VR/AR systems, blockchain, and the Internet of Things. More details about Ph.D. applications and Ph.D. scholarships are as follows.
