ISE Welcomes New Faculty Member in Complex Systems Modeling and Nonlinear Optimization
Chen Chen has joined the Department of Integrated Systems Engineering as an Assistant Professor in September of 2017 as part of the Sustainable and Resilient Economy program.
Chen received his Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering in 2010 from the University of Toronto. He earned his PhD degree in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research in 2015 from the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to joining the ISE department he was a postdoc in the IEOR department at Columbia University. He has also interned at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Ontario Power Authority.
Chen focuses on both the theory and implementation of algorithms for convex integer programming and (nonconvex) polynomial optimization. He is currently looking at applications in power systems (e.g. dispatch and planning problems) and in statistical learning (e.g. variable selection and neural network training).
