Hao-hua Chu (“Hao”) was born in 1971, Taipei, Taiwan. He started schooling at Fuhsing kindergarden, elementary and junior high school (復興國民中小學幼稚園), Taipei. At an age of 14, he moved to Massachusetts. From 1985 to 1986, he attended Cushing Academy, Ashburnham, Massachusetts. From 1986 to 1989, he attended Northfield Mount Hermon School, Mount Hermon, Massachusetts, where he received his high school degree. From 1989 to 1994, he enrolled at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. He received both his B.S. and M.E. degrees in Computer Science. From January 1994 to August 1994, he worked as a software programmer at the Design Research Institute, Xerox Corporation. From August 1994 to August 1999, he became a graduate student at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. He received his Ph.D. degree in computer science under the supervision of Professor Klara Nahrstedt. During his graduate study, he took a summer off to work as an intern at the Validation Technology group at Intel Corporation, Folsom, California. After completing his Ph.D., he worked as a senior software engineer at Intel Architecture Lab in Hillsboro, Oregon. Later in June 2000, he became a project manager at (NTT) DoCoMo USA Labs in San Jose, California. From August 2003, he moves back to Taiwan to teach at the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering, National Taiwan University.
