Brief Biography

Chen-Nee Chuah is currently a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of California, Davis. Chuah received her B. S. in Electrical Engineering from Rutgers University in 1995, and her M. S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from U. C. Berkeley in 1997 and 2001, respectively. From 2001 to 2002, she was a visiting researcher of the IP-Group at Sprint Advanced Technology Laboratories in Burlingame, CA. She joined UC Davis as a full-time Assistant Professor in July 2002, and currently leads the Robust and Ubiquitous Networking (RUBINET) Research Group. Chuah's research interests lie broadly in communications and computer networks, and wireless/mobile computing, with emphasis on Internet measurements and analysis, anomaly detection, architecture of the future Internet, network management, and big data applied to online social networks, intelligent transportation systems, and health informatics.

Chuah is an ACM Distinguished Scientist and a Fellow of the IEEE. She received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2003 for her research on Robust, Stable, and Secure Routing. She received the Outstanding Junior Faculty Award from the College of Engineering at UC Davis in 2004. In 2008, Chuah was named a UC Davis Chancellor's Fellow.

Chuah has served on the technical program committee of several ACM and IEEE conferences and workshops (including SIGCOMM, INFOCOM, IMC, MOBICOM, and SECON). She received the ACM Recognition Award for co-organizing the First Workshop on Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) in 2004. She was the TPC vice-chair of IEEE GLOBECOM 2006 and the co-Chair of IEEE IWQoS 2007. She served as the Associate Editor of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking from 2008 to 2013. She currently serves as the Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing.
