Yin Sun is an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Auburn University, Alabama. He received the B.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, in 2006 and 2011, respectively. He was a Postdoctoral Scholar and Research Associate at the Ohio State University from 2011-2017. His research interests include Age of Information, Networking, Information Theory, and Machine Learning. He is a Guest Editor of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications for the special issue on “Age of Information in Real-time Systems and Networks” and an Editor of the Journal of Communications and Networks. He has served in the organizing committees of several major conferences, including ACM MobiHoc 2019, IEEE INFOCOM 2020-2021, IEEE/IFIP WiOpt 2020, and IEEE WCNC 2021. He founded the Age of Information Workshop in 2018, served as the General Chair and TPC Chair of the workshop in 2018-2019, and has been a steering committee member of the workshop since 2020. His articles received the Best Student Paper Award from the IEEE/IFIP WiOpt 2013 and the Best Paper Award from the IEEE/IFIP WiOpt 2019. He coauthored a monograph Age of Information: A New Metric for Information Freshness, in the Synthesis Lecture Series on Communication Networks, published by Morgan & Claypool Publishers in 2019. He received the Auburn Author Award of 2020. He has maintained the online Paper Repository on Age of Information since 2016.
