Guoliang Xing's research lies at the interface between systems, data/information processing, and domain sciences, with a focus on interdisciplinary applications in health, environment, and energy. His research group develops new technologies at the frontier of mobile health, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Internet of Things (IoT), wireless networks, security and privacy. Several mobile health technologies developed in his lab have been commercialized and used by thousands of users. Prof. Xing led the development and field deployment of several large-scale cyber physical systems, including 20+ seismic monitoring systems on two live volcanoes in South America. He has been awarded 10 NSF grants, including 4 large multi-institute grants from major NSF interdisciplinary programs (Smart and Connected Health, Cyber Physical Systems, Cyber-Innovation for Sustainability Science and Engineering, and Cyber-Enabled Discovery and Innovation). Prof. Xing has served as the Steering Committee member, General Chair, and TPC Chair of several international conferences including IPSN – IEEE/ACM’s premier conference on information processing in sensor systems.

💡 Smart Mobile Health Systems: A key global challenge today is to deliver high quality yet economically efficient healthcare solutions. The prominence of mobile technologies holds the promise of fundamentally transforming today’s reactive, hospital-centered healthcare practice to proactive, individualized care, and shifting the focus from disease to wellbeing. Our work on mobile health focuses on 1) building novel mobile systems that can monitor holistic health data ranging from biological rhythms (heart/respiration rate, sleep quality etc.), daily activities (work, family routine, exercise, etc.), to social interactions in dynamic, challenging environments, 2) transforming health data to behavioral, psychological, and physiological models using novel sensing and data analytics techniques, and 3) developing motivational feedback systems to empower individuals to improve lifestyles and participate in their own health treatment.
💡 Cyber-physical Systems and Internet of Things. CPS and IoT interact with the physical world by tightly integrating sensing, actuation, computation, and physical objects. As a key enabling technology for many critical domains such as environment, smart cities, transportation, and smart grids, CPS and IoT have been recognized as a top national research priority in several US presidential reports. Many CPS and IoT systems must process large volume of data from dynamic environments under tight energy and real-time constraints. We have developed new systems and computing paradigms for such data-intensive CPS/IoT applications. My group has developed new systems and computing paradigms for such data-intensive CPS applications.
