Dr. Zhenhua Liu Wins the 2021 ACM SIGMETRICS Rising Star Research Award

ACM SIGMETRICS is pleased to announce the selection of Dr. Zhenhua Liu of Stony Brook University as the recipient of the 2021 ACM SIGMETRICS Rising Star Research Award. Dr. Zhenhua Liu is presented the award for fundamental research on managing complex distributed systems with limited information and network constraints.

Zhenhua Liu is an Assistant Professor of Operations Research in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics and affiliated with the Department of Computer Science at Stony Brook University (SUNY at Stony Brook). He received his PhD in Computer Science from California Institute of Technology, under the supervision of Adam Wierman and Steven Low. His research aims to develop analytical models, theoretical results, and deployable algorithms to manage complex distributed systems with limited information and network constraints. He has helped HP design and implement the industry's first Net-zero Energy Data Center, which was named a 2013 Computerworld Honors Laureate. He was recently awarded an IBM 2020 Global University Program Academic Award for his research on resource management of AI/ML systems.

His research work is widely cited and recognized in academia, including the Best Paper or Best Student Paper Awards at IEEE INFOCOM, ACM GREENMETRICS, and IEEE Green Computing Conference, the Pick of the Month award by IEEE STC on Sustainable Computing, a SPEC Distinguished Dissertation Award (honorable mention), an NSF CAREER award, and several Excellence in Teaching awards.
