Dr. My T. Thai is a full Professor in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Department at the University of Florida. She received her Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at the University of Minnesota in 2005. Her research interests are centered on the Combinatorial Optimization and its connection to Networks, including communication networks, social networks, wireless sensor networks, and biological networks. More specifically, the focus of her research is to design and analyze several new models and approximation algorithms for various fundamental problems, arising from the networking fields mentioned above.

Dr. Thai has engaged in many professional activities, serving many conferences, such as being the PC chair of IEEE IWCMC 12, IEEE ISSPIT 12, DIS 11, and COCOON 2010. She is an Associate Editor of Journal of Combinatorial Optimization (JOCO), IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS), Optimization Letters, and a series editor of Springer Briefs in Optimization. She has received many research awards including a Provosts Excellence Award for Assistant Professors at the University of Florida, a DoD YIP, and an NSF CAREER Award.
