Dr. Jin Chen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Energy Plant Research Laboratory (PRL) and the Department of Computer Science and Engieering, Michigan State University. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the National University of Singapore (NUS) under the supervision of Dr. Wynne Hsu, Dr. Mong Li Lee and Dr. See-Kiong Ng in 2007. Before joining MSU, he was a postdoctoral research associate in the bioinformatics laboratory of Dr. Seung Y. Rhee at the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University from December 2006 to August 2009.

His research focuses on the development of data mining and computer vision algorithms to solve basic biological problems. He has developed series of algorithms for phenomics data analysis, including inter-functional clustering, heterogeneity pattern recognition, phenotype ontology development, phenotype data quality control, gene ranking, and data visualization. He is also interested in biological network reconstruction using high-dimensional omics data. The algorithms have been used on regulatory module identification, organelle communication mining, and data-driven ontology construction. He has published more than 40 papers in computer science, bioinformatics and plant biology. Currently Dr. Chen's research is supported by NSF, DOE and MSU.
