Dr. Jie Bao received his Ph.D. in computer science (advised by Professor Vasant Honavar) from the Iowa State University (ISU) in 2007. At ISU, he developed new formalisms and tools for semantic data integration, modeling modular ontologies, collaborative ontology building and Web privacy protection. For his work on modular ontologies, he received the Best Paper Award from the Asian Semantic Web Conference 2006.

From 2008 to 2011, Dr. Bao is a research associate at the Tetherless World Constellation, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he worked with Professor James Hendler and Professor Deborah McGuinness on a variety of topics in Semantic Web. He has pursued research on social semantic web, ontology integrity constraint languages, policy formulation and scalable reasoning with Web ontologies. Specific efforts in this period have included the development of methodologies and applications of semantic wiki-based approaches for the analysis, modeling, production and use of semantic web data.

From 2011 to present, Dr. Bao is a researcher at Samsung Information System America (SISA) in San Jose, CA, US.

Dr. Bao has authored more than 50 research papers in journals, peer-reviewed international conferences and workshops. He has served on Organizing Committees or Programming Committees of more than 30 international conferences and workshops, including prestigious International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI), International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), Extended/European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC), Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC) and Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) Symposia, among others. He contributed more than 100 review services for these conferences. He is currently serving on the editorial board of Journal of Emerging Technologies in Web Intelligence, and served as an editor for Journal of Multimedia Tools and Applications and Journal of Multimedia. He has been invited as a reviewer for Journal of Web Semantics (JWS), IEEE Transactions on Knowledge & Data Engineering (TKDE), Data & Knowledge Engineering (DKE), Knowledge & Information Systems and Web Intelligence & Agent Systems (WIAS). He is a member of the OWL Working Group at W3C in which he co-authored two W3C specification documents of OWL 2.
