Yin Chen serves as a research assistant professor at Hide Tokuda lab in the graduate school of media and governance, Keio University Shonan Fujisawa Campus. He received his B.S. and M.S. Degrees both in Computer Science from Xidian University, China in 2008 and 2011 and Ph.D. Degree in Systems Information Science from Future University Hakodate, Japan in 2014, respectively. From Apr. to Oct. 2014, he was working as a postdoctoral re- searcher in Future University Hakodate. He is a member of IEEE. His research interests are in the wide area of wireless communication and networks. In particular, his current research focuses on the modeling, development and implementation of urban sensing system using garbage-collecting trucks.
