Dr. Wei Dai is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department at Imperial College London. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2007. From 2007 to 2010, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His main research interests include sparse signal processing, signal processing for machine learning, linear inverse problems, bilinear/multilinear inverse problems, wireless communications, random matrix theory, and their applications in sensing and localization.
Dr. Dai was involved in the development of the first compressive sensing DNA microarray prototype. One of his publications in 2009 on compressive sensing reconstruction has been cited more than 2000 times up to now (according to Google scholar).
