Philip S. Yu
Yu received his BS in electrical engineering from the National Taiwan University, and his MS and PhD also in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1978, and received an MBA from New York University in 1982.
Yu started his career at Thomas J. Watson Research Center, where he eventually became manager of the Software Tools and Techniques group. Currently he is Distinguished Professor and Wexler Chair in Information Technology at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Illinois at Chicago
Yu holds over 300 US patents, is ACM Fellow and IEEE Fellow, is Editor-in-Chief of ACM Transactions on Knowledge Discovery from Data, chaired numerous conferences, and has been awarded several awards by IBM, the IEEE, and others.
Yu's research interests are in the fields of "data mining (especially on graph/network mining), social network, privacy preserving data publishing, data stream, database systems, and Internet applications and technologies." Yu is an ISI Highly Cited researcher. According to Google Scholar, Yu's H-index is among the ten highest in computer science.
Yu published several books and over 650 articles. A selection:
