Jie Bao

Associate Researcher II

About

Dr. Jie Bao currently is an associate researcher in Urban Computing Group at MSR Asia. He currently works on large scale urban data management on the cloud (i.e., Microsoft Azure). His main research interests include: Spatio-temporal Data Management/Mining, Database Systems, and Distributed Computing Platforms (e.g., Hadoop, Storm and Spark). He got his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at University of Minnesota at Twin Cities under the advisory of Prof. Mohamed Mokbel in 2014.

Before joining MSR, he was a research intern in IBM T.J Watson Lab in 2013, and Microsoft Research, Asia in 2011. He has published over 30 research papers (e.g., ICDE, VLDB, SIGMOD, ACM SIGSPATIAL and Geoinformatica) in refereed journals and conferences.
