Ting He is a Research Staff Member in the Mobile Network Analytics Resarch Group at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY. She received the Ph.D. degree from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Cornell University, in 2007 and the B.S. degree in Computer Science from Peking University, China, in 2003. At IBM, Ting has worked as a task lead under the International Technology Alliance (ITA) program funded by US ARL and UK MoD, the ARRA program funded by NIST, and other research projects on network science and technologies. Previously at Cornell (2003-2007), Ting was a member of the Adaptive Communications & Signal Processing (ACSP) group under the supervision of Prof. Lang Tong. Before joining Cornell, she worked as an undergraduate research assistant in the Micro Processor Research & Development Center of Peking University from 2001 to 2003, during which period she participated in the development of Unicore System funded by the National 863 Plan of China.

Ting has been a senior member of IEEE since 2013. She has served on the TPC of a range of conferences in the area of communications and networking, including IEEE INFOCOM (2009-), IEEE/ACM IWQoS (2014-), IEEE SECON (2010-2013), IEEE MILCOM (2013-), IEEE WiOpt (2016), IFIP Networking (2013), etc. She has also served as the Membership Co-chair of ACM N2Women during 2013-2014, as well as the GHC PhD Forum committee in 2011. She received the 2016 IBM Research Division Award for "Scientific Advances in Quality of Information", the 2016 Distinguished TPC Member Award at IEEE INFOCOM, the 2006-2015 Most Collaboratively Complete Publications Award by the International Technology Alliance (ITA), the Best Paper Award at 2013 International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS), a Best Paper Nominee at 2013 Internet Measurement Conference (IMC), and the Best Student Paper Award at the 2005 International Conference on Acoustic, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP). Her students received the Kenneth C. Sevcik Outstanding Student Paper Award at 2015 ACM SIGMETRICS and the Best Student Paper Award at 2013 ITA Fall Annual Meeting (previously Annual Conference of ITA). In school, she was an Outstanding College Graduate of Beijing Area and an Outstanding Graduate of Peking University in 2003, and was a winner of the Excellent Student Award of Peking University during 1999-2002 and a recipient of Canon, Sony, and Yang-Wang Academicians scholarships.

Ting has worked on a wide range of research projects spanning statistical inference, information theory, control theory, online learning, and graph theory. Her research aims at applying techniques from fundamental theory to network monitoring and optimization in emerging networking scenarios. Her PhD research covered nonparametric change detection and estimation in large-scale sensor networks, stepping-stone and information flow detection in Internet and wireless ad hoc networks, and throughput analysis of clandestine information flows. At IBM, her research includes controlled mobility in hybrid communication networks, gateway optimization in coalition networks, and workload scheduling in cloud computing networks. Her recent research interest focuses on network tomography for hybrid or coalition networks.
