Biography

Nan Cen is a PhD student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University. She is currently working in the Wireless Networks and Embedded Systems Laboratory under the guidance of Professor Tommaso Melodia. She received her M.S. in Electrical Engineering from The State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, the United States, in 2014. She had previously received her B.S. in Information Science and Engineering and M.S. from Shandong University, Jinan, China, in 2008 and 2011, respectively. From 2011 to 2012 she was a software developer of Alcatel-lucent Co. in Qingdao, China. She worked as a summer intern in Bell Labs and in IBM, in 2014 and 2010, respectively.
