Dr. Chen, Chien-Yu is currently a professor of the department of Bio-Industrial Mechatronics Engineering, National Taiwan University. From 2019/2/1, she also serves as the chief scientist of Genomic AI in the Taiwan AI Labs. She has expertise in Bioinformatics, machine learning, and gene regulatory networks. Dr. Chen received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University in 1996, the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1998, and the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Information Engineering from National Taiwan University in 2003. With the strong background of developing machine learning algorithms during her Ph.D. study, the research of Dr. Chen mainly focuses on designing machine learning methods for solving problems of molecular biology, including predicting protein-DNA binding and variant pathogenicity, using both supervised learning such as classification/regression and unsupervised learning such as clustering/pattern mining.
