Hi! I'm Jiasi Chen, an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of California, Riverside. I received my Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2015 (advisor Mung Chiang) and my B.S. from Columbia University. My hometown is the lovely city of Halifax, Canada. See my CV for more details.
My general research area is multimedia networking, with particular focus on the wireless and machine learning aspects. Recently, I've been interested in the network and systems challenges of augmented and virtual reality. My projects typically involve some combination of mathematical optimization and systems implementation on real testbeds. I'm also a co-founder and the current faculty advisor for our wonderful ACM-Women chapter here at UCR.
Names of my students (or co-advised students) are underlined.
