Research Interests

My research aims to build rigorous foundations and develop new methodologies in optimization and control, game theory, and systems theory for modeling, analysis, design, and control of complex networked systems, in particular communication/computer networks and power networks. A long-term research goal is to create a mathematical underpinning of network architecture that would include a common analytical framework that integrates sensing, computation, communication, control, and incentive, and allow rigorous analysis and systematic design of complex networked systems.

Lijun Chen is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Telecommunications at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He received his Ph.D. in Control and Dynamical Systems from the California Institute of Technology, and was a Research Scientist in Computing + Mathematical Sciences at the same institute before joining the University of Colorado. His current research interests are in communication networks, power networks as large-scale cyber-physical systems, sparse sampling and parsimonious solutions, and optimization, game theory, and their engineering applications.
