Hi, I am Tiffany Yu-Han Chen, a final year Ph.D. student in the MIT CSAIL Networks and Mobile Systems group, advised by Prof. Hari Balakrishnan. I like building practical systems and applying machine learning techniques to create interesting mobile/networked computing/embedded applications.

I am supported by an Irwin Mark Jacobs and Joan Klein Jacobs Presidential Fellowship and a Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship.

I collaborate actively with Dr. Victor Bahl, Dr. Lenin Sivalingam, and Dr. Matthai Philipose. I received my Bachelors in Computer Science and Business Administration from National Taiwan University in 2010, where I worked with Prof. Hao-Hua Chu and Prof. Polly Huang.
