Jingyuan (Leo) Chen

Hi! I’m a PhD student at Princeton University advised by Professor Amit Levy. My research interests span a wide range of topics in Systems, Cloud Computing and Programming Languages. I am currently passionate about topics such as decentralized systems, program analysis, etc. I was an undergraduate at UNC-Chapel Hill majoring in Computer Science & Mathematics. In the past, I’ve been working as a research assistant under the supervision of Professor James Anderson, Professor F. Donelson Smith, and Professor Shahriar Nirjon.
