Geek of the Week: Dr Yijun Yu

A few weeks ago we launched a feature called Geek of the Week. Every week CloudWedge will nominate a ‘Geek of the week’ to any Cloud Leader who has been in the news in the last week that we feel deserves special mention or praise.

We are happy to announce this weeks’ Geek of the Week is Dr Yijun Yu, senior lecturer in computing for the ‘Computing and Communications Department’ at the Open University in England. We have decided to give him this honor because of his vision of the implications of the cloud, and his ideas about how cloud computing will change the face of aviation. We saw this with his opinions of how the use of the cloud could have prevented the current situation with Flight MH370.

Yu has been in academia since 1992, he started in Fudan University in China and has been with the Open Univerity since 2006. He is a member of the IEEE Computer Society and the British Computer Society.
