I received my Ph.D. degree at the Georgia Institute of Technology, worked with Dr. Douglas M. Blough in the Critical Networking Lab. I am currently a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (by courtesy) at North Carolina State University (NCSU).
Rapid technological innovations are necessary to keep up with ever-accelerating human demands, and my long-term research goals revolve around achieving pervasive user-centric applications through ubiquitous networking and intelligence. This vision is realized through generalization, virtualization, digitization, and softwarization designs, where the synergistic methodologies unlock the opportunities that support emerging applications on mobile edges, enabling untethered and smart connectivity for work, entertainment, social connections, health, etc. Specifically, my research covers broad areas of networking, machine learning, computing, and communication, spanning:
Our project on “Digital Network Twins” is funded by the NSF CNS Core program, thanks NSF!
Congrats on the acceptance of our journal paper on Graph Neural Networks for Joint Communication and Sensing Optimization at IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (JSAC)!
Congrats on the acceptance of our three papers focusing on UAV Localization, Complex Neural Networks, and Spatial-Temporal Prediction Model at the IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM)!
We got the Best Paper Award for our paper titled “E-App: Adaptive mmWave Access Point Planning with Environmental Awareness in Wireless LANs” at IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (ICCCN)!
Glad to serve as Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking, and please feel free to submit your work here.
I am looking for multiple Ph.D./M.S./Undergraduate students and Research Interns to work in the area of network intelligence, digital twins, generative AI and ML (in Fall 2023/2024, Spring 2024).
If you are a prospective student interested in applying to NCSU and working with me, please drop me an email at yuchen.liu at ncsu dot edu with your CV, and I will do my best to help in your journey once we have a commitment to each other.
