Baochun Li, a professor in the Edward S. Rogers Sr. department of electrical and computer engineering in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, has been elected a 2024 Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada in recognition of his excellent contributions to engineering and services to the profession and to society.
A leading researcher in multimedia systems, networking, cloud computing and distributed systems, Li’s research on cloud computing security has significantly improved privacy and security when sharing files through the cloud, allowing third-party auditors to verify the integrity of shared files.
A Bell Canada Endowed Chair in Computer Engineering since 2005, Li has worked closely with industry partners such as Bell Canada and Microsoft to advance the networking and video streaming sectors.
“We celebrate Professor Li’s leadership and recognition in areas of networking, cloud computing and distributed systems,” said Professor Christopher Yip, dean of the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering. “His research is making the networks we use more efficient and more secure. On behalf of the faculty, my warmest congratulations on this well-deserved honour.”
