Dr. Cathy Honghui Xia is an associate professor of Integrated Systems
Engineering at OSU, with a courtesy appointment from Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
Before joining OSU, she has worked at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center as a research scientist for about 10 years. Dr. Xia received her Ph.D. in Economic
Engineering Systems and Operations Research and her M.S. in Statistics, both from Stanford University. She obtained a B.S. (with honors) in Applied Mathematics from Peking University, Beijing, China.
She is a longtime member of ACM Sigmetrics, INFORMS, and Applied Probability Society.
Dr. Xia's research focuses on using stochastic models and probabilistic analysis to provide insights and solutions for efficient design, control and performance optimization of complex networks and systems in practice. These range from communication networks to cloud to cyberphysical systems to transportation systems. She is especially interested in fundamental problems in scalable design, capacity planning, dynamic pricing, scheduling and resource allocation, distributed control, and security maintenance of these complex systems.
Dr. Xia is the co-editor of Book Performance
Modeling and Engineering (Springer 2008) and
Special Issue on Cloud Computing as a Service (Service Science 2012). She is the recipient of the 2013 INFOCOM Best Paper Runner-Up Award and has published over 70 peer-reviewed journal articles and conference proceedings.
Dr. Xia is an elected member on the board of directors for ACM Sigmetrics Society.
She was the topical editor for
Wiley Encyclopedia of Operations Research and Management Science
(EORMS). Currently she serves on the editorial board of the international journal
Performance Evaluation (PEVA), and is the associate editor for the
International Journal of Information
Systems in the Service Sector
She has served on the technical and executive committees of several major conferences and workshops,
including ACM Sigmetrics, IFIP Performance, INFORMS Annual Meeting, INFORMS Midwest, etc.
