Dr. Shih-Chun Lin

| Biography

Dr. Lin conducts research on wireless software defined networking systems, including 5G and beyond cellular networks, Internet of Things, and cyber-physical systems, along with network function virtualization and cloudification. He also conducts research on wireless communication in challenged underground and underwater environments. All of these studies are investigated through both rigid theoretical analysis and practical implementations.
