Dr. Jun Li is an associate professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Oregon, and directs the Network & Security Research Laboratory there. He received his Ph.D. from UCLA in 2002 (with honors), M.E. from Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1995 (with a Presidential Scholarship), and B.S. from Peking University in 1992, all in computer science. In 2011 he held a "Catedra de Excelencia" (Chair of Excellence) at the Carlos III University of Madrid, Spain, and was a visiting researcher at the IMDEA Networks Institute in Spain.
Dr. Li has published a book on disseminating security updates over the Internet and more than 40 peer-reviewed papers. He has also served on several US National Science Foundation research panels and on more than 60 international technical program committees. He is currently an editor of Computer Networks, chair of the Eighth Workshop on Secure Network Protocols, lead chair of the Communication and Information System Security Symposium at IEEE Globecom 2014, and chair of QoS, Reliability and Security Symposium at the IEEE International Conference on Communications in China (ICCC) 2013. Dr. Li is a 2007 recipient of the prestigious NSF CAREER award, a senior member of ACM, and a senior member of IEEE.
Specializing in computer networks, distributed systems, and their security, Dr. Jun Li is currently researching Internet monitoring and forensics, Internet architecture, social networking, cloud computing, and various network security topics. He studies both direct countermeasures against network security attacks (including Internet worms, phishing, botnets, and sybil attacks) and fundamental security issues and solutions at the network architecture and protocol level (such as security for Internet routing, DNS, and peer-to-peer networking).
