Chee Wei Tan received the B.S. (First Class Honors) from the National University of Singapore and the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Princeton University, Princeton, NJ. He is an Associate Professor of Computer Science. His research interests are artificial intelligence, networks and graph analytics, convex optimization and AI technologies for learning at scale.

He was a Visiting Faculty at Tencent AI Lab, a Senior Fellow of the Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics (IPAM) for the program on Science at Extreme Scales. He was a Postdoctoral Scholar at the California Institute of Technology, and affiliated with the Netlab Group at Caltech.

He is currently serving as Editor for the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking. He previously served as Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications (2012-2018), the Chair of the IEEE Information Theory Society Hong Kong Chapter when he received the 2015 IT Society Chapter of the Year Award. Dr. Tan was the recipient of the Princeton University Wu Prize for Excellence, Google Faculty Award, IEEE ComSoc Researcher Award, and was twice selected for the U.S. National Academy of Engineering China-America Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. He is Director of Education Bureau's Programme on Creative Mathematics and Computer Science for Gifted Students and the Computer Science Challenge (eSports game tournament) for high school students to learn computer science and advanced mathematics.
