Dr Wei Shao is now working as Postdoc Researcher at UC Davis followed by Prof Junshan Zhang. Before, he was working at Arizona State University. His current work is focusing on building a RL-based simulation platform for investigating AI algorithms in mix-road autonomy car. His research interest includes fairness issue in graph neural networks, wireless sensing, Internet of Things, and smart cities. He is passionate about working on real-world problems with frontier research results. In addition, he is fond of solving problems with both industrial and research value.

Previously, Dr Wei Shao was working as a Research Fellow at CIDDA, RMIT, Australia. He was also working in ARC Centre of Excellence in Automated Decision Making and Society (ADMS).

Dr Wei Shao obtained PhD in the RMIT supervised by Prof. Salim and Dr. Chan. He was awarded the scholarship from SUPP project. He worked as a Researcher Assistant at the University of Hong Kong in Computer Science department. He was carrying out an ITF project. He received the Master of Science ( pass with distinction ) in Computer Science (CS) of The University of Hong Kong.
