Chen Feng is an assistant professor with a joint appointment to Tandon’s Department of Civil and Urban Engineering and Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Geodesy and Geomatics in 2010 from Wuhan University, in China, and then entered the University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor, where he earned an MSE in Construction Engineering and Management (2012), an MSE in Electrical Engineering: Systems (2013), and a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering (2015).
Prior to NYU, Chen was a research scientist at the Computer Vision Group at the Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL), where he worked on visual simultaneous localization and mapping (vSLAM) and deep learning for autonomous driving and robotics, and invented several patented algorithms.
Chen Feng is currently leading a multidisciplinary research group named AI4CE (pronounced as A-I-force), which stands for Automation and Intelligence for Civil Engineering, and aims to advance robot vision and machine learning through multidisciplinary use-inspired research that originates from civil/mechanical engineering domains.
Research Interests: Robot Vision and Machine Learning, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Augmented and Virtual Reality, with applications in Civil and Mechanical Engineering.
