About Me

My name is Yushun (Oliver) Chen. I am currently a Master's Student in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a concentration in software development at Duke University. I have graduated from UW-Madison in May 2022. I triple-majored in B.S. Computer Sciences, Statistics, and Applied Mathematics. I was also in the Letter & Sciences Honors Program. Here is my resume and here is my course guide of all the courses that I have taken. For future research interests, I am particularly interested in software engineering and HCI.

    Duke University

    Sep 2022 - May 2024 (estimated)

    M.S. ECE

    GPA: NA/4.000

    Life is sometimes running in circles. I fell in love with Duke since my high school days in Charlotte, NC. I am so glad that I can come back to a familiar state and eventually become a student at Duke.

    Duke's rigorous academic standards and beautiful campus attract me the most. I visited Duke in 2018 when I was in high school and took the picture to the right. I remember clearly walking on the campus and I have to say that time flies!

    UW-Madison has everything that I wanted for a university: high academic standards, sports, beautiful scenaries, and favorite people around.

    This is my own course guide at UW-Madison, which consists of all the courses that I have taken and all the credit that I have earned in college.

    I am also active outside of classrooms. I worked at Liz's Market which is a dining hall on campus. This was my first job in the United States. My second job is being a note-taker for the McBurney Disability Resource Center.

    Charlotte Catholic High School

    Aug 2016 - May 2019

    GPA: 4.5/4.8

    First Honors (All Semesters)

    I went to Charlotte Catholic High School in Charlotte, North Carolina for three years. It was a religious school and I was exposed in the environment of Catholicism ✞.

    The school also provided various AP courses that I took a lot of advantages from. Charlotte is a beatiful place and I still miss it so much after I graduated from high school, especially the weather.

    I love cities that have both an NBA team (Charlotte Hornets) and an NFL team (Carolina Panthers).

    Hubei Yichang Yiling High School | 湖北省宜昌市夷陵中学

    Sept 2015 - Jun 2016

    It was an amazing year of high school in China. There were many unforgettable memories with some of my favorite people in life.

    The experience of spending one year in a rigorous Chinese high school has built solid foundations for my academic abilities, especially science subjects such as math, physics, and chemistry

    The campus is large and beautiful. The TV series《时光与你都很甜》on Mango TV was shot at my high school.

Interests

Technology

Anything related to technology is intriguing, big or small. It can be as small as a phone's chip or a desktop's CPU, or it can be as large as a whole network of automated vehicles.

Soccer/Futbol

Soccer is no doubt my favorite sport, which I play and watch for years. A solid Real Madrid fan here. ¡Hala Madrid!

American Football

My favorite American sport since I came to the US in 2016. Three years in Charlotte have made me a Carolina Panthers fan. I have been watching some packers games since I came to Wisconsin, too.

Basketball

Fun sport! Follow NBA from time to time. The best thing is that it is always fun to play basketball with some friends.

Music

A rap and hip pop fan. Favorite artists include Eminem, Post Malone, DaBaby, Lil Uzi Vert, Future, Drake, ...

Games

Currently playing: CSGO; Deprecated but still in my heart: Vainglory (NA top 100 in the past)

TV Series

English or Chinese ones are both fine. Favorites: The Mandalorian, The Office, Game of Thrones, Arrow (my English name Oliver is from here)

Movies

Who doesn't love movies? I am open to many movie types. I especially love superhero movies (Marvel or DC). Big star wars fan here as well!
