Lei Ying received his B.E. degree from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, and his M.S. and Ph.D in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He currently is an Associate Professor at the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University, and an Associate Editor of the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking.

His research interest is broadly in the area of stochastic networks, including cloud computing, communication networks and social networks. He is coauthor with R. Srikant of the book Communication Networks: An Optimization, Control and Stochastic Networks Perspective, Cambridge University Press, 2014. The book has been selected as a notable book in the Computing Reviews' 19th Annual Best of Computing list.

He won the Young Investigator Award from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) in 2009 and NSF CAREER Award in 2010. He was the Northrop Grumman Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University from 2010 to 2012. His papers have received the best paper award at IEEE INFOCOM 2015 (paper), the Kenneth C. Sevcik Outstanding Student Paper Award at ACM SIGMETRICS/IFIP Performance 2016 (paper), been selected in ACM TKDD Speical Issue "Best Papers of KDD 2016" (paper), received the WiOpt'18 Best Student Paper Award, and selected for Fast-Track Review for TNSE at IEEE INFOCOM 2018 (7 out of 312 accepted papers were invited).

His student, Weina Wang, will join Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University as Assistant Professor in August, 2018.
