Dr. Bo Chen is a Professor 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 is the Director of the Intelligent Mechatronics and Embedded Systems Laboratory focused on the investigation of advanced controls, optimization, and artificial intelligence for connected and autonomous vehicles, electric vehicle – smart grid integration, and smart mobility. 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. She has received over 10 million dollars external research funds as PI or Co-PI. Dr. Chen has authored/co-authored over 100 peer-reviewed journal/conference papers. She has received one Best Paper Award from IEEE/ASME International Conference on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications (MESA), one Top Cited Article Award from the Journal of Computers & Graphics, and one Best Survey Paper Award from IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). In addition, she was the co-recipient of four Best Student Paper Awards and one Best Paper Award at IEEE/ASME conferences with her graduate students.

Dr. Chen has served as the Chair of the Technical Committee on Mechatronics and Embedded Systems in the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society and the Chair of the Technical Committee on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications in the ASME Design Engineering Division. Dr. Chen was the General Chair of 2013 ASME/IEEE International Conference on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications. She has also served as Program Chair, Symposium Chair, and Session Chair for a number of international conferences. Dr. Chen was an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems from 2012-2019 and served as Guest Editor of two special issues on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications in Intelligent Transportation Systems for the IEEE Trans. on ITS.
