Xiaolin Hu

Dr. Xiaolin Hu is a Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies, and Director of the Systems Integrated Modeling and Simulation (SIMS) Lab of Computer Science Department at Georgia State University. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Arizona, Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in 2004.

Dr. Hu was a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award recipient. His research interests include modeling and simulation theory and application, complex systems science, agent and multi-agent systems, and advanced computing in parallel and cloud environments. His work covers both fundamental research and applications of computer modeling and simulation. Recent works include developing Dynamic Data-Driven Simulation (DDDS) as a new simulation paradigm that constantly assimilates real-time data from a system under study. The developed methods have been applied to applications such as large-scale wildfire spread simulations. Another line of work includes studying adaptive behaviors and developing multi-agent coordination mechanisms for autonomous systems such as unmanned aircraft systems. He also developed agent-based modeling and simulation for complex social and public health systems. His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).

Dr. Hu served as chairs for many international conferences/symposiums in the field of modeling and simulation, and is associate editors for ACM Transactions of Modeling and Computer Simulation (TOMACS), Simulation: Transaction of The Society for Modeling and Simulation International, International Journal of Modeling, Simulation, and Scientific Computing (IJMSSC), and International Journal of Agent Technologies and Systems (IJATS). He published more than 100 technical papers, served as review panelist for NSF and NIH, and gave many colloquium/invited talks.

Dr. Hu is a senior member of IEEE and a senior member of SCS.
