Author: Jian Chen

Dr. Jian Chen is associate professor at Center for Science and Engineering Education, Berkeley lab and UMBC . Before joining CSEE and UMC in fall 2012, she was faculty at USM. Prior to that, she was a member of the Brown University Scientific Visualization Research Lab with Dr. David H. Laidlaw. She completed Ph.D degree in 3DI group led by Dr. Doug A. Bowman at Virginia Tech, and Master Degree at VERI led by Dr. R. Bowen Loftin. She's current research investigates effective and efficient interaction and visualization techniques to aid researches in cutting-edge sciences and engineering to explore vast amount of data. The current research method combines the fields of cognitive, perceptual and sensory-motor abilities and mathematical modeling.
