 Mobile video is becoming a key driver of lifestyle in the networked age. Reconciling demanding video applications with scarce wireless spectrum, however, is no easy task for network researchers and operators, and traditional mobile resource management techniques often interact poorly with client-driven control of streaming applications. I propose solutions that rethink the interactions between the client's decisions and the network operator’s optimizations. As illustrated through three cases: LTE video multicast, MPEG-DASH video delivery, and data-quota-constrained video adaptation, I show how inter-disciplinary research across multimedia signal processing, wireless networking, and network economics can achieve fair provisioning of user experience and efficient utilization of wireless resources.


 Jiasi Chen is an assistant professor in the department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of California, Riverside. She received her Ph.D. in 2015 from Princeton University, advised by Mung Chiang, and her B.S in electrical engineering from Columbia University in 2010. Her research interests include mobile systems, video streaming, wireless communications, network economics, and the Internet-of-things, through a combination of mathematical analysis and systems development. She has also collaborated with industry, including AT&T, Intel, Lockheed Martin, and NEC.
