Brief Biography

Meixia Tao received the B.S. degree in electronic engineering from Fudan University, Shanghai, China, in 1999, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2003. She is currently a Professor with the Department of Electronic Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. Prior to that, she was a Member of Professional Staff at Hong Kong Applied Sci & Tech Research Institute during 2003-2004, and a Teaching Fellow then an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National University of Singapore from 2004 to 2007.

Her current research interests include wireless caching, edge computing, physical layer multicasting, resource allocation, and interference management. She has published over 150 IEEE journal and conference papers on these topics. Dr. Tao is the recipient of the IEEE Heinrich Hertz Award for Best Communications Letters in 2013, the IEEE/CIC ICCC Best Paper Award in 2015, and the International Conference on Wireless Communications and Signal Processing (WCSP) Best Paper Award in 2012. She also received the IEEE ComSoc Asia-Pacific Outstanding Young Researcher Award in 2009.

Dr. Tao currently serves as a member of the Executive Editorial Committee of the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications. She was on the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications (2007-2011), and the IEEE Transactions on Communications (2012-2018), the IEEE Communications Letters (2009-2012), and the IEEE Wireless Communications Letters (2011-2015). She serves and has served as Symposium Oversight Chair of IEEE ICC 2019, Symposium Co-Chair of IEEE GLOBECOM 2018, TPC chair of IEEE/CIC ICCC 2014, and Symposium Co-Chair of IEEE ICC 2015.
