About me

Wei Si received his B.E. from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China in Information Engineering in Jun. 2010, and Ph.D. degree from Boston University in Systems Engineering in Jan. 2016. During his PhD, he was doing research in Nislab, advised by Professor David Starobinski. His research interests include data synchronization algorithms, routing protocols in disruption tolerant networks and wireless sensor networks, network coding, network capacity and delay analysis.

He has had rich software development experience in object-oriented programming languages (C/C++, Java, Python). He has participated in developing open-source analysis toolkit for routing protocols (4000 lines of code) and implemented distributed routing algorithms on embedded sensor systms (3000 lines of code). He is currently looking for a software engineering job.
