She is the Akamai Professor in Internet Mathematics at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) in the United States since 1998. She received her doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania in 1974, under the direction of Herbert Wilf. After working at the Bell Laboratories and Bellcore for nineteen years, she joined the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania as the first woman tenured professor in mathematics. She serves on the editorial boards of more than a dozen international journals. Since 2003 she is the editor-in-chief of Internet Mathematics. She has given invited lectures in many conferences, including International Congress of Mathematicians in 1994, and a plenary lecture on the mathematics of PageRank at the 2008 Annual meeting of American Mathematical Society.

Chung has two children, the first born during her graduate studies, from her first marriage [1] [2]. She has been married to the mathematician Ronald Graham since 1983. The couple were close friends of the mathematician Paul Erdős, and have both published papers with him; thus, both have Erdős numbers of 1. Ronald L. Graham (born October 31, 1935) is a mathematician credited by the American Mathematical Society with being one of the principle architects of the rapid development worldwide of discrete mathematics in recent years[1]. He has done important work in scheduling theory, computational geometry, Ramsey theory, and quasi-randomness. ... For the Jimi Hendrix song, see 1983. ...

The ErdÅ‘s number, honouring the late Hungarian mathematician Paul ErdÅ‘s, one of the most prolific writers of mathematical papers, is a way of describing the collaborative distance, in regard to mathematical papers, between an author and ErdÅ‘s. ...

Chung biography (2052 words)
Chung graduated with a B.S. in mathematics in 1970 and then went to the United States for her graduate studies.
Chung was awarded an M.S. in 1972, then continued her studies for a Ph.D. with Wilf as her supervisor.
Chung and Graham were not only associated with Erdös through his mathematics, but they also were close personal friends with their home providing for him the only place he had as a base.
