Fanglin Chen 陈芳霖

I am a first year PhD Student at the Carnegie Mellon HCII, advised by Professor Jason Hong.

My primary research interests are ubiquitous computing and privacy. Currently I am working on Google Open Web of Things expedition (Giotto). The goal of this project is to build out an open infrastructure for the Internet of Things, in a manner that is adaptive, privacy-sensitive, and easy for developers.

I earned my M.S. at Dartmouth College in 2015 and B.E. from Nankai University in 2012.
