Tingjun Chen to join Duke University as an Assistant Professor

Tingjun ChenTingjun Chen, a Ph.D. student in the WiMNet lab will join the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Duke University as an Assistant Professor in Aug. 2021. He will be working on various components – from emerging Physical technologies to cross-layered design and optimization of networked systems – to further push the frontier of future wireless networks and IoT systems, with the goal of providing ultra-high bandwidth and ultra-low latency services to the users.

Tingjun started his M.S./Ph.D. program in EE in Fall 2014 after graduating with a B.Eng. degree in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University. His research interests are in the areas of future wireless networks and the Internet-of-Things (IoT) systems, where he has been applying tools from networking, optimization, and system design. He is the student co-lead of the Columbia FlexICoN project and is highly involved in the design and deployment of the NSF PAWR COSMOS testbed. He was also involved in the Columbia EnHANTs project.

“My journey at Columbia EE started all the way back when I did a research internship in Gil’s group in summer 2013 (when I was a junior undergrad at Tsinghua). Things have been really amazing here in the past couple of years: I’ve met wonderful people and enjoy living in the city, I have been fortunate to have amazing mentors and collaborators and we work on exciting research topics in wireless networks and systems, and I really like the dynamic, vibrant, and collaborative environment at Columbia,” said Chen.
