Dr. Yan Chen received the B.S. and M.S. degrees (with honors) in Control Science and Engineering from Harbin Institute of Technology, Harbin, China in 2004 and 2006, respectively. He received his second M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rice University, Houston in 2009, and the Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from The Ohio State University, Columbus in 2013.
Dr. Chen joined Arizona State University as an Assistant Professor in August 2016, after three years of full-time industrial research experience at Ford Motor Company and Cummins Inc., respectively. Dr. Chen’s research interests include design, modeling, estimation, control and optimization of dynamic systems, specifically for (electric/hybrid) ground vehicle, internal combustion engine, powertrain, aftertreatment, energy, nanomanipulation, and mechatronic systems. He is the author or co-author of more than 22 peer-reviewed publications.
Dr. Chen has served as an Associate Editor for the ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Conference and American Control Conference since 2015. He has also served as the session organizer of ASME Automotive and Transportation Systems Technical Committee since 2016.
