Personal profile

Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer at The University of NorthamptonNorthampton, teaching media technologies and interaction design as part of BSc Computing and Business Computing programmes. I also take upon the role of Academic Integrity Officer to promote academic standards. My current research topics include QoE and human factors in online multimedia, programmable networks, SDN/NFV applications, and immersive media. I am the Principal Investigator of the EPSRC First Grant project SDCN: Software Defined Cognitive Networking. I have over 50 publications in prestigious international conferences and journals including IEEE ComMag, IEEE J-SAC, IEEE J-STSP, and ACM ToM. I am a member of IEEE and ACM, and a Fellow of the HEA.

Research Interests

Dr Mu has been responsible for teaching, research, and the management of several European and UK projects. He also led the R&D of the Vision online IPTV system and the Storisphere storytelling platform for prototyping and user evaluation of new designs and development of creative media, context-aware distributed systems, and web technologies.

Dr Mu’s current research interests cover the topics of QoE and human factor in multimedia systems, SDN/NFV applications, media orchestration, creative media as well as social and behavioral context integration. He published over 40 research papers in prestigious international conferences and journals, including IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Communications Magazine, IEEE Multimedia, ACM Multimedia and ACM Multimedia Systems. He regularly serves as a programme committee member or a reviewer of workshops, conferences and journals such as the Springer MMSJ, IEEE TMM, ACM MMSYS, ACM TVX, IEEE ICC, IEEE CCNC and Elsevier COMNET. Dr Mu also reviews books and project proposals.
