Yawen Chen - Welcome!

Senior Lecturer

I obtained my PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Adelaide in Australia in 2008. Before my PhD study, I received my Bachelors/Masters degree in Computer Science in 2002/2004 from Shandong Normal (Teachers) University in China. In Feb. 2012 I was appointed as Lecturer in Department of Computer Science at Otago University, and promoted to Senior Lecturer from Feb. 2018. I got Marsden Fund as PI in 2016.

I am currently in Systems Resesarch Group. My research interests include network-on-chips, optical networks, wireless optical networks, multicore computers, wired/wireless networks, delay tolerant and smartphone networks, and data center networks. Please feel free to contact me if we could work together on the related research. I am open for Ph.D applications, visiting students and scholars.
