Recent Paper Submissions:

Chung Chan, Ali Al-Bashabsheh, Qiaoqiao Zhou, and Tie Liu, "Duality between feature selection and info-clustering," IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, submitted November 2016.


The main focus of my research has been in understanding the fundamental limits of wireless communication systems via the lens of information theory. In recent years, I have also ventured out into the fields of distributed storage, machine learning, and data structures, again using information theory as the primary exploration tool. My projects and papers provide a finer look at the nature of my research interest and the engineering scope of contributions.

I learned about information theory and how to do research in general from my Ph.D. advisors Prof. Pramod Viswanath and Prof. Pierre Moulin, to whom I am in debt forever.

In my spare time, I play amateur soccer for the Sugar Land Gators in the Fort Bend Adult Soccer Association League and the Houston Hurricanes in the Houston Football Association League. I also enjoy accompanying my son Stephen to take skating lessons from his coach Max.

Notes to prospective students:

I work very closely with my students and generally limit the size of my research group to 4-5. I welcome requests for assistantships as they help my recruiting effort. However, due to the large amount of requests that I receive every year, I have not been able to reply to the vast majority of them. I sincerely ask you not to be offended.
