About Me

I am Wanwen Chen (陈婉雯), a Ph.D. student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia, and my advisor is Dr. Tim Salcudean. I am affliated to the Robotics and Control Lab. Currently, I am investigating the potential of ultrasound in transoral robotic surgery, working closely with the Vancouver General Hospital. I am a recipient of the Four Years Doctoral Fellowship at the University of British Columbia. Overall, my research lies at the intersection of medical images and robotics. My research interests include augmented reality for surgery, ultrasound-based diagnosis, and medical image analysis.

I have a M.S. in Robotics from the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Dr. John Galeotti. Before joining CMU, I received a B.S. in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from Peking University, where I worked with Dr. Qining Wang. I visited Biomechatronics Lab at the University of California, Los Angeles, advised by Dr. Veronica J. Santos for the Cross-disciplinary Scholars in Science and Technology (CSST) in 2018.

Outside research, I enjoy spending time in sports. I like biking, hiking, hitting the gym, hoping to master skiing during my stay in Canada. I as well have fun reading books, listening to music, and using Duolingo.
