Hi! I'm Jiun-Ren Lin!

More Information

I received my PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in December, 2014. My research interests include computer networks, wireless networks and communications, personal communication systems, vehicular networks, and machine learning. My PhD research is related to the software and system design of intra-vehicular sensor networks and related applications for next-generation vehicles.

Education and Experience

I received my bachelor degree from National Chiao Tung University and my master degree from National Taiwan University. Both degrees are in Computer Science. Before joining Carnegie Mellon University, I have worked in Microsoft Taiwan as a software developer for around one year. During the past few summers, I did two internships in General Motors Global Research and Development and one in Texas Instruments. I have gained a great deal of valuable experience during my time there working with talented colleagues.

Research and Publications

As a member of the research community in Carnegie Mellon University, it is exciting to get my hands on many interesting research projects. The most important project that I have been working on throughout my time in CMU is the Intra-vehicular Wireless Sensor Network project, which is also the main topic of my PhD thesis. This work focuses on the system design, implementation, and the application development of the wireless networks among sensors and Electrical Control Units (ECUs) in a passenger vehicle. This project is highly hands-on and practical, and the ultimate goal is to enhance the performance and the fuel efficiency of the future vehicles and enrich their product features.

Honors and Professional Activities

It is my pleasure to contribute to the technology community and serve as the peer reviewers of several prestigious international journals and conferences in recent years, including IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC), IEEE International Conference on Sensing, Communication, and Networking (SECON), IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC), IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC), IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM) Workshop, IEEE Conference on Wireless On-demand Network Systems and Services (WONS), IEEE IFIP Wireless Days Conference, IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC), International Journal of Vehicle Autonomous Systems (IJVAS), Journal of Information Systems Education (JISE), etc. I have also served as the chair of Ad-Hoc and Sensor Networks Applications Session during the IEEE 74th Vehicular Technology Conference in San Francisco, September, 2011.
