Dr Sid Chau

Sid Chi-Kin Chau recently joined the Research School of Computer Science at the Australian National University. He was an Associate Professor with the Department of Computer Science at Masdar Institute, which was created in collaboration with MIT, and is a part of Khalifa University of Science and Technology.
His research interests are related to the computing systems and applications for sustainable smart cities, applying Internet-of-things, computational intelligence, advanced algorithms and big data analytics to develop sustainable solutions for smart cities, including smart grid, smart buildings, intelligent vehicles and transportation. He also researches in broad areas of algorithms, optimization, and Internet-of-things.
Previously, he was a visiting professor with MIT, a senior research fellow with A*STAR in Singapore, a Croucher Foundation research fellow with University College London with a research fellowship awarded by the Croucher Foundation Hong Kong, a visiting researcher with IBM Watson Research Center and BBN Technologies, and a post-doctoral research associate with University of Cambridge. He received the Ph.D. from University of Cambridge with a scholarship by the Croucher Foundation Hong Kong, and B.Eng. (First-class Honours) from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
He is on the TPC of several top conferences in smart energy systems and smart cities, such as ACM e-Energy, ACM BuildSys. He is a TPC co-chair of ACM e-Energy 2018, and guest editor for IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Computing Special Issue on Intersection of Computing and Communication Technologies with Energy Systems and IEEE Journal of IoT Special Issue on Internet-of-Things for Smart Energy Systems. He was a co-founder of a start-up specializing in intelligent systems and big data analytics for smart building management.
