Biography


Dr. Mei Chen is the Principal Investigator for the Intel Science and Technology Center in Embedded Computing (ISTC-EC). She is responsible for providing leadership for the Intel ISTC-EC researchers and working with the academic PI on leading and managing the ISTC-EC.

She was a lead researcher at Intel Labs Pittsburgh from 2006-2011, spearheading the computational health program. She has an extensive track record of high-impact research in computer vision, machine learning, robotics and other fields. She has five award winning papers at top-tier international conferences, and holds fifteen granted U.S. patents.

While working at HP Labs Palo Alto from 2001-2006, she successfully transferred her research in computational photography onto five HP product series (including HP Photosmart printers, HP All-in-One devices, HP Real Life Technologies, and HP Photosmart digital cameras).

She earned her Ph.D. from the Robotics Institute in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, and a M.S. and B.S. from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.
