Dr. Chen Chen is an Assistant Professor of Information Systems at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen. He obtained his Ph.D. in Molecular Cancer Biology from  Duke University in 2014 and Ph.D. in Management from Boston University in 2020. His primary research interests include 1) using advanced deep learning algorithms and language models to decipher how human beings interact, behave and make decisions in both virtual and real communities; 2) understanding the dynamics of patient-doctor's interaction on online healthcare platforms; 3) knowledge engineering and knowledge interpolation/extrapolation vis knowledge graph and Graph Neural Networks.
