Christina Shin

I’m a first year Ph.D. student in Computer Science Department at University of Southern California. I’m working as a research assistant advised by Prof. Ramesh Govindan in Networked Systems Lab.

Before joining NSL, I received my B.S. degree and M.S. degree in Computer Science and Engineering at Ewha Womans University under supervision of Prof. HyungJune Lee.

I’m broadly interested in Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANET), Wireless networks, Crowdsourcing systems, and IoT (Internet-of-Things). My current research focuses on Connected Autonomous Vehicles Systems.
