Bo Xu received his B.S. degree in Computer Science from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 1991. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, in 1994 and 1997 respectively. After graduating from Ph.D., Bo Xu did postdoctoral research in the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Currently he is a Research Scientist of the Department of Computer Science at UIC. He has been a Team Leader in Armillaire Technologies.
Bo Xu authored over 66 publications and holds one patent. These publications have collectively received 252 peer citations according to CiteSeer. His publication titled "Opportunistic Resource Exchange in Inter-vehicle Ad Hoc Networks" won the best paper award at the 2004 International Mobile Data Management Conference. He authored keynote papers for the 2004 International Workshop on Databases, Information Systems, and Peer-to-Peer Computing, and the 2004 IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control. His research has been funded at a level that is nearly 1 million dollars from NSF and NASA.
Starting from 2008 Bo Xu became a part-time Ph.D. student in the IGERT Computational Transportation Science (CTS) program, which is a new multidisciplinary doctoral training program at the University of Illinois at Chicago educating specialists in the information technology aspects of transportation science. His thesis is about query processing in mobile peer-to-peer networks. He has passed the qualifying and preliminary exams and is ready for the defense.
