Chung-Shue (Calvin) Chen is a Research Scientist and DMTS at Nokia Bell Labs. He also holds a position of Permanent Member at LINCS.

Prior to joining Bell Labs, he worked at INRIA, in the research group on Network Theory & Communications (TREC, INRIA-ENS). He was an ERCIM Alain Bensoussan Fellow at the Norwegian University of Science & Technology (NTNU, Department of Electronics & Telecommunications) and the National Center for Mathematics & Computer Science (CWI, Amsterdam). He was an Assistant Professor at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). He worked at CNRS in Lorraine on Real-Time & Embedded Systems. 

Calvin has served as TPC in international conferences including ICC, Globecom, WCNC, PIMRC, VTC, CCNC and WiOpt (TPC Vice Chair). He is an Editor of European Trans. on Telecommunications (ETT) and an Associate Editor of IEEE Access. He is an IEEE Senior Member. His research spans a wide range of topics in optimization, information & communications, algorithms, 5G/IoT, complex networks, resource allocation, learning, and intelligent systems. Thanks to KS, his Erdos number is 3.
