Dr. Yingying Chen is a tenured Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology. She received early promotion twice at Stevens: from Assistant to Associate Professor, and from Associate to Full Professor. She leads the Data Analysis and Information Security (DAISY) Lab, an inter-disciplinary research group working on a diverse set of projects. She is also the Graduate Program Director of Information and Data Engineering (IDE) and Networked Information Systems (NIS). She was a visiting professor at Princeton University. Her background is a combination of Physics, Computer Science and Computer Engineering. Her research has been reported in numerous media outlets including CNN, the Wall Street Journal, MIT Technology Review, Fox News Channel, Inside Science TV, Voice of America TV, National Public Radio (NPR), Tonight Show with Jay Leno and CNET.
Her research interests include:
Smart Healthcare, Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber Security and Privacy, Connected Vehicles, Mobile Computing and Sensing.
Particularly, she is using machine learning techniques and data mining methods to classify and model the healthcare, security, system, network related problems. Besides the algorithm development, her work has a strong emphasis on system implementation and validation in real-world scenarios. Her interdisciplinary research and education have been sponsored by multiple grants from various funding agencies:
She has co-authored the books Securing Emerging Wireless Systems (Springer 2009) and Pervasive Wireless Environments: Detecting and Localizing User Spoofing (Springer 2014). She published over 100 journal articles and referred conference papers. Prior to joining Stevens Institute of Technology, she was with Alcatel-Lucent at Holmdel & Murray Hill, New Jersey. Her work has involved a combination of research and development of new technologies and real systems, ranging from Network Management Systems for Lucent flagship optical and data products to voice/data integrated services.
