Bo Chen is the Dave House Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering in the Department of Mechanical Engineering – Engineering Mechanics and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan Technological University. She received the Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Davis, in 2005. Dr. Chen conducts interdisciplinary researches in the areas of intelligent mechatronics and embedded systems; modeling, control, and energy management of hybrid electric vehicles; EV-smart grid integration; IC engine management systems; and cyber-physical systems. Her research projects are funded by National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, and industrial partners. Dr. Chen has authored or co-authored over 70 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers. She received the Best Paper Award at 2008 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications.

Dr. Chen served as the Chair of the Technical Committee on Mechatronics and Embedded Systems of IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society and the Chair of the Technical Committee on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications of ASME Design Engineering Division. She is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems. Dr. Chen has served as Program Chair, Symposium Chair, and Session Chair for a number of international conferences. She was the General Chair of 2013 ASME/IEEE International Conference on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications.

Dr. Chen is currently a Visiting Professor in the EV-Smart Grid Interoperability Center at Argonne National Laboratory.
