Xi Wang

Xi WangXi Wang received his B.S. degree in Electronic Engineering from Doshisha University, Japan, in 1998, and his M.E. and Ph.D. degrees in Information and Communication Engineering from the University of Tokyo in 2000 and 2003. His Ph.D. thesis focused on routing and wavelength assignment for burst-switched photonic networks. While at the University of Tokyo, he also served as group leader of the Photonic Internet research team at the Aoyama & Morikawa Laboratory to design and implement a fully-functional burst-switched optical network under a Japanese national project sponsored by National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT). He was a visiting post-doctoral research associate with the Electronic Visualization Laboratory, Computer Science Department, University of Illinois at Chicago from 2005 to 2007, where his research focus was on innovative photonic networking technologies contributing to the overall design of a seamless global optical infrastructure for eScience applications.

Xi joined Fujitsu Laboratories of America, Inc. in 2007, and has been engaged in research and development of advanced optical communication technologies for future telecom and cloud computing applications. His current research interests include architecture design, control and management of next-generation ROADM networks, OTN networks, packet optical networks, and future photonic switching networks.

Xi regularly contributes papers to conferences including OFC, ECOC and OECC and maintains close ties with research colleagues in China, USA, and Japan. He is a member of IEEE Communications Society.
