Yuan Shen

Yuan ShenYuan Shen was born in Shanghai, China and attended Tsinghua University in Beijing. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at MIT working with Professor Moe Win. Shen’s research involves determining fundamental limits of localization accuracy for wireless networks that exploit cooperation among different mobile nodes. This work, which has resulted in several papers in top IEEE journals, provides important new insights into the localization process and can be used as a guideline for localization systems design and as benchmarks for cooperative location-aware networks.
 
Shen's research interests include communication theory, information theory, and statistical signal processing. His current research focuses on wideband localization, cooperative networks, and ultrawide bandwidth communications. He received the  Ernst A. Guillemin Thesis Award (first place) for the best S.M. thesis from the Department of EECS at MIT in 2008, the Roberto Padovani Scholarship from Qualcomm Inc. in 2008, the Best Paper Award from the IEEE WCNC in 2007, and the Walter A. Rosenblith Presidential Fellowship from MIT in 2005.
