Brief Biography

Wei Song received the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada, in 2007. From 2008 to 2009, she was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA. In 2009, she joined the Faculty of Computer Science, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, NB, Canada, where she is now an Associate Professor. Her current research interests include various areas in future wireless communications and networking. She received the UNB Merit Award in 2014, the Best Student Paper Award from IEEE Consumers Communications & Networking Conference (CCNC) 2013, a Top 10% Award from IEEE Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP) 2009, an NSERC postdoctoral fellowship in 2008, and a Best Paper Award from IEEE Wireless Communications & Networking Conference (WCNC) 2007.

Dr. Song has been actively participating in professional activities. She has served the Technical Program Committee for various international conferences including IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE ICC, IEEE GLOBECOM, and IEEE WCNC. Particularly, she was the system administrator for IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology. She co-chaired the Wireless Access Track of IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC), Fall 2010, the General Symposium of International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC), 2011, the Wireless Communications Symposium of IEEE Global Conference on Communications (GLOBECOM), 2011, the Communication QoS, Reliability & Modelling Symposium of IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC), 2014, and the Vehicular Communications, Networks, and Telematics Track of IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC) Fall, 2016. She is also an Editor of IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology. She is now the Communications/Computer Chapter Chair of IEEE New Brunswick Section.
