Dr. Wen Hu is a principal research scientist at CSIRO Computational Informatics. Much of hisresearch career has focused on the novel applications, low-power communications and security issues in sensor networks and pervasive computing systems. He has recently become interested in the applications of compressive sensing in Internet of Things (IoT). Hu published regularly in the top rated sensor network venues and mobile computing such as ACM/IEEE IPSN, ACM SenSys,EWSN, ACM transactions on Sensor Networks (TOSN), Proceedings of the IEEE, and Ad-hoc Networks.

Hu received his Ph.D from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in computer science and engineering. He is a recipient of prestigious CSIRO Office of Chief Executive (OCE) Julius Career Award (2012 - 2015) and CSIRO OCE postdoctoral grant.

Hu holds adjunct associate professor positions at Queensland University of Technologies,University of Queensland, and UNSW. He is a senior member of ACM and IEEE, and serves on theorganising and program committees of networking conferences including ACM/IEEE IPSN, ACM SenSys, ACM MobiSys, IEEE LCN, IEEE ICC, IEEE WCNC, IEEE DCOSS, IEEE GlobeCom, IEEE PIMRC, and IEEE VTC.
