Dr. Chen has studied the
application of Biosystems engineering to Bio-industry and medicine. He
received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Agricultural Engineering
from National Taiwan University in 1978 and 1980. He studied the
processing engineering of agricultural products at the Agricultural
Engineering Department, the Institute of Engineering and Science in the
University of Minnesota from 1985 to 1988. The minor was Chemical
Engineering. He received his Ph.D. in 1988. He served as an Associate
Researcher in the Taiwan Agricultural Research Institute in Taichung,
Taiwan in 1988. He was appointed as an Associate Professor of the
Department of the Agricultural Machinery Engineering, National
ChungHsing University in 1996, where he changed his research projects
from agriculture to bio-industry. He was promoted as a Professor in
2000. His current research and scientific interest focus on Biomedical
instrumentations, Sensing systems, Plant micropropagation, Modeling of
orchids production and Protected culture in subtropical climate.
