The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering will host Jyh-Cheng Chen as a visiting research scholar in the Wireless Engineering Research and Education Center (WEREC) for fall 2007. Chen is an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and the Institute of Communications Engineering at National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) in Hsinchu, Taiwan. While at Auburn, his research will be supported by Taiwan's National Science Council (NSC).

Prior to joining NTHU, Chen was a research scientist at Bellcore/Telcordia Technologies in Morristown, N.J. At Telcordia, he contributed to several networking projects, such as the DARPA-funded active networks project and the Internet Technologies Supporting Universal Mobile Operation (ITSUMO) joint research project with Toshiba Corporation.

Chen has published over 60 papers and holds 15 U.S. patents, three P.R.C. patents, and two R.O.C. patents. He is a coauthor of the book "IP-Based Next-Generation Wireless Networks" published by John Wiley & Sons Inc. in January 2004 and has been on the technical program committee of numerous international conferences. He received his master's degree from Syracuse University and a doctorate in electrical engineering from SUNY - Buffalo.

"We are most pleased to have the opportunity for our faculty to interact with such a distinguished and well-known researcher in the wireless area," says Dave Irwin, head of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. "His interest in being here is indicative of the expertise we have in wireless engineering on the AU campus."
