Yuanfang CHEN

Yuanfang Chen, PhD student

Yuanfang Chen is a team member of Service Architecture Lab of Télécom SudParis, Institut Mines-Télécom, where she is currently pursuing her PhD on the issues of Internet of Things.  She is working with Prof. Noel Crespi of Telecom SudParis.  Her research interests are wireless sensor networks and human dynamics based on wireless networks. She received the M.Sc. degree in Dalian University of Technology, China.  She received the B.E. degree in Zhejiang University of Technology, China.  She is an assistant researcher in Illinois Institute of Technology (Xiang-Yang Li), U.S.A., from 2009 to 2010.  She had been awarded the MASS 2009 IEEE Travel Grant, IWCMC 2009 and MSN 2010 Invited Paper.  She has served as volunteer of Mobicom & Mobihoc 2010 and IEA-AIE 2012.  She has been invited as the TPC member of ICCNT 2011, GPC 2011 & 2013 and ICCIT 2012; and the Publicity Co-Chairs of the International Symposium on Mobile and Wireless Network Security 2011.  She has served as reviewer of journals and conferences, e.g., Ad Hoc & Sensor Wireless Networks. She is a student member of IEEE and ACM. Current Research: Yuanfang Chen focuses on localization algorithm and MAC layer performance optimization.  Based on her previous experience, she has built a crowd model about the human behavior based on the location information of wireless netoworks.  Moreover, the model can be used to analyze the social behavior of human (human dynamics; location-based human social behavior analysis)..
