Dr. Chen is Dave House Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering in the Department of Mechanical Engineering – Engineering Mechanics and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan Technological University. Dr. Chen was a Visiting Professor at Argonne National Laboratory from June 2014 to May 2015 and summer 2016. Dr. Chen conducts interdisciplinary research in the areas of advanced vehicle/powertrain control, connected and automated vehicles, electric vehicle – smart grid integration, and cyber-physical systems. She has worked as PI or Co-PI for a number of research projects with total external funds over 10 million dollars. Sponsors of her research include National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, Argonne National Laboratory, Ford Motor Company, Nexteer Automotive, Nostrum Energy, and Michigan Space Grant Consortium. Dr. Chen received the Best Survey Paper Award from IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems in 2013 and the Best Paper Award from 2008 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications (MESA). She was the co-recipient of four Best Student Paper Awards and one Best Paper Award at IEEE/ASME MESA conferences with her graduate students.

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