Qiang Qu is an associate professor, the executive director of Global Center for Big Mobile intelligence at Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (SIAT), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). He was awarded by CAS Pioneer Hundred Talents Program. Before joining SIAT, he was an assistant professor, the director of Dainfos Lab, the Associate Head for Research at Institute of Information Systems of Innopolis University.He received his Ph.D. at Aarhus University, supervised by Prof. Christian S. Jensen. His Ph.D. research was supported by the GEOCrowd project under Marie Sk?odowska-Curie Actions. He was a visiting scientist working with Prof. Gustavo Alonso at ETH Zurich in 2014-2015, a visiting scholar working with Prof. Christos Faloutsos at Carnegie Mellon University, a visiting scholar working with Prof. Gao Cong at Nanyang Technological University, and a visiting scholar working with Prof. Feida Zhu at Singapore Management University. He obtained his M.Sc in Computer Science from Peking University. His current research interests are in transportation, AI, spatial-rich data management, large-scale data mining, knowledge-base systems, and information flow and cascading behavior in networks. Along his study, he has been awarded, e.g., Canon Scholarship, China Excellence National Scholarship, and Honorable Awards of International Mathematics Modeling Competition and Java Cup Competition. He has work experience in Sun Microsystems and IBM China Research Lab, and he has been involved in several projects supported by governments and companies.
