Chung Shue (Calvin) Chen


Chung-Shue (Calvin) Chen is a Researcher (MTS) at Nokia Bell Labs, with the Mathematics of Dynamic Systems department. He also holds a Permanent Research Member position at LINCS.

Calvin received his B.Eng., M.Phil., and Ph.D. degrees in Information Engineering from The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). 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 CUHK during 2005-2006. He worked at CNRS at Nancy on Real-Time & Embedded Systems during 2006-2007.

Calvin has served as TPC in international conferences including ICC, Globecom, WCNC, PIMRC, VTC, CCNC and WiOpt. 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 work spans a wide range of topics in optimization, information & communication sciences, algorithms, 5G/IoT, complex networks, learning, and intelligent systems. Thanks to KS, his Erdos number is 3.
