About me

Tianyi Chen has been with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) as an assistant professor since August 2019. In RPI, I am also an active member in the Rensselaer-IBM Artificial Intelligence Research Collaboration (AIRC). Prior to joining RPI, he received the doctoral degree from the University of Minnesota under the supervision of Prof. Georgios B. Giannakis.

Dr. Chen is the inaugural recipient of IEEE Signal Processing Society Best PhD Dissertation Award in 2020, a recipient of NSF CAREER Award in 2021 and a recipient of Amazon Research Award in 2022. He is also a co-author of the Best Student Paper Award at the NeurIPS Federated Learning Workshop in 2020 and at IEEE ICASSP in 2021.

Research interests: theoretical and algorithmic foundations of optimization, machine learning, and statistical signal processing, with applications in networked systems such as wireless systems and Internet-of-Things.

Notice: I am always looking for self-motivated students and postdocs working in the areas of machine learning, optimization, and wireless networks. Please drop me an email if you are interested.
