Biography

John Chuang is Full Professor in the School of Information at UC Berkeley, with an affiliate appointment in the Department of EECS. His research spans the areas of network economics, system interdependencies, P2P incentives, usable security, and brainwave authentication. The Chuang Sirbu Scaling Law is named for his work on scaling properties of multicast trees.

He received his Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University, M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, and graduated summa cum laude in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California.

Prof. Chuang is co-creator of BoxBabble, an ingredient-based search tool serving consumers with food allergies and sensitivities. He designed the registerfile and won the chip logo design contest for the MIPS R10000 microprocessor, now in the collection of the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institute.

Something few people know about me
I worked for Jerry Yang before he became a household name, when we were both graduate students at Stanford. Unfortunately, I was working for him as a grader for an intro VLSI course in Electrical Engineering that he was TA'ing, rather than as an early employee of his Yahoo! startup.
