Dr. Danjue Chen is an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Prior to UMass Lowell, she worked as a Researcher at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and a postdoc at California PATH at University of California, Berkeley.Dr. Chen has received the NSF CAREER award. Her research aims to (1) better understand the fundamental nature of traffic flow, particularly with cutting-edge vehicle technologies such as connected vehicles and autonomous vehicles, (2) understand the cyber-physical-system of smart vehicles which includes sensing, computation, communication and control, and (3) understand the complex interaction between human and machines (like smart vehicles). Her research has been sponsored by NSF, USDOT, and state DOTs.
