Kaikai Liu joined SJSU as an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Engineering since 2015. His research interests include Mobile and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Smart Sensing, Internet-of-Things (IoT), Software-Defined Computing and Networking.
He was a member in the Scalable Software Systems Laboratory (S3Lab) and Advanced Computing and Information Systems Laboratory (ACIS) at the University of Florida (UF), where he contributed to many Nation-level Landmark Projects, including NSF GatorCloud (National 1st SDN-enabled campus cloud). He has published over 15 peer-reviewed papers in journals and conference proceedings, 1 book, and holds 4 patents (licensed by three companies). He developed several prototype systems that can potentially improve and save people's lives, for example, emergency communication system for smart city, Ultra-wideband communication and detection for search and rescue victims, indoor localization and navigation for the disabilities. He is a recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award at UF (four times), the Apple WWDC Student Scholarship (2013 and 2014), the Innovator Award from the Office of Technology Licensing at UF (2014), the Top Team Award at NSF I-Corps Winter Cohort (Bay area, 2015), the 2015 Gator Engineering Attribute Award for Creativity, and the IEEE SECON Best Paper Award. He served as the TPC member for the Data Center & Big Data track of the 24th and 25th ICCCN, technical reviewers for many IEEE/ACM transactions.
