Chen Wang
Xinhua Net

Brief Bio
Chen Wang is the vice director at FMCI, Xinhua Net. Her interest is on user experience by using wearables. She received the bachelor of science in telecommunication engineering from Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications of China, and the master of science in electrical engineering from Delft University of Technology of the Netherlands. During her PhD study in the National Research Center of Mathematics and Computer Science, the Netherlands, Chen Wang shifted to physiological computing on user experience evaluation. Her research is unique, combining Human-Computer Interaction, da ta science, hardware design, and networking. Chen Wang has published her results in top venues like ACM CHI, ACM CSCW, ACM C&C, NordiCHI, PhyCS, and QoMEX. Chen Wang has rich experience on measuring group user experience by using physiological sensors. She designed and developed the different version of physiological sensors, which are suitable for simultaneously measuring group user experience in field studies, e.g., theaters, museum visitors, and learning environment. The self- developed sensors have two versions: adult and children, which have been extensively tested in theater performances, commercial dance events, and distributed learning environment. In 2017, Chen Wang joined FMCI of Xinhua Net and closely collaborated with creative industries. The collaboration resulted in several consultancy projects with giant companies in China. ... More >>
