Lei Qian’s research has included investigation of passive optical logic devices, pure and applied logics, formal methods, computer security, pattern recognition, and grid computing, many of them funded via peer-reviewed funding. He published 26 papers and book chapters, including 14 peer-reviewed journals papers. In addition to serving as a reviewer for a number of journals in his research area, he also has served as a member of Program Committees for Smartel, American Computer Science Association, and SHTH (IEEE Globecom 2010 Workshop on Smart Homes for Tele-Health),and a judge of the NOAAAnnual Education and Science Forum.
