Dr. Junchen Jiang was awarded the Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science Distinguished Dissertation Award, for his Ph.D. thesis entitled “Enabling Data-Driven Optimization of Quality of Experience in Internet Applications”.   One of two such awards given this year, it comes with a prize and an invitation to give a Distinguished Lecture at the school.   Junchen was advised by Profs. Vyas Sekar and Hui Zhang at CMU, who state:

“Junchen’s dissertation presents the vision of “data-driven networking”—a paradigm shift in the way networked applications are managed—and demonstrates real-world benefits in Internet-scale applications.”  

Junchen’s algorithms are already being used by industry, in large-scale systems such as the Conviva video streaming service and Skype (now owned by Microsoft).   Junchen is currently completing a Postdoc at Microsoft Research in New York City, and will be joining the Computer Science Department at the University of Chicago as an Assistant Professor in July 2018.
