Qi Han received her Ph.D. degree from the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Irvine in 2005. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Colorado School of Mines. She founded and currently directs the Pervasive Computing Systems (PeCS) research group (http://pecs.mines.edu). Her current research interests include mobile sensing systems and applications, wireless and sensor networking, cyber-physical systems, and robotic sensor networks. Dr. Han’s research has been centered around designing algorithms, developing techniques, and building systems to enable pervasive and mobile computing applications. She is also active in interdisciplinary research, where she applies wireless sensor networks and robotics into various applications such as environmental monitoring, energy efficient buildings, oil refinery inspection, and underground mine safety. Dr. Han has published over 100 refereed articles and these articles have been cited almost 2,000 times per Google Scholar as of June 2017. As of June 2017, Dr Han’s h-index (Hirsch number) is 19 per Google Scholar. In other words, she has at least 19 articles with 19 or more citations.
Dr. Han was program co-chair for the 2nd IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMART- COMP) 2016 to promote the emerging important multidisciplinary area of smart living through computing, which is closely tied to NSF’s big initiative on Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC). She was program vice-chair for the 15th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communication (PerCom) 2017, a premier conference in my research field of pervasive computing. In addition, she served on technical program committee of over 80 international conferences and workshops, two journal editorial boards, various NSF proposal review panels, reviewer for many reputed journals. She has given over 30 invited talks.
Dr. Han is an ACM Distinguished Lecturer, an ACM member, and an IEEE member. She is also a member of ACM's Special Interest Group on Mobile Computing (SIGMOBILE).
