Yi-Ching Chiu


ycchiu_profileI am a fourth year Ph.D. student in Computer Science Department at the University of Southern California, where I work as a research assistant in Networked Systems Laboratory(NSL). I am co-advised by Professor Ethan Katz-Bassett (now in Columbia University) and Professor Ramesh Govindan. My research interests are Internet measurement and Internet routing. More specifically, I focus on understanding and leveraging large content provider’s rich connectivity to improve user experience. Before joining NSL, I received my B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University in 2014. Here is my CV.
