Associate Professor School of Sciences
Associate Professor Fangyi CHEN obtained his Bachelor and Master degrees both in the field of Biomedical Engineering from Tsinghua University (Beijing, China) in 1997 and 2000, respectively. He received his PhD in the field of Electrical and Computer Engineering from The University of Boston in 2005. He worked as a Research Associate and then Research Engineer in Oregon Hearing Research Centre from 2005 to 2012. At 2012,Dr. CHEN joined Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech, Shenzhen, China) as an Associate Professor. From 2013, he became the vice president of the Zhiren College in the SUSTech. As one of the founders, Associate Professor CHEN became the Executive Dean of the Department of Biomedical Engineering in 2016. His research focuses on the development of the instruments in otolaryngology, in vivo study of the cochlear mechanics, and functional assessment of the hearing and vestibular systems in animal models. The specific research topics include the investigation of the spatial distribution of cochlear amplifiers, high-throughput screen for the genes related to the sense of hearing/balance, and development of the portable devices for the in vivo functional assessment of the hearing/vestibular systems. Associate Professor CHEN has published more than 19 journal papers (SCI), including 10 first-author or correspondence-author ones. One of these papers was published by the Journal of Nature Neuroscience. These publications have been cited more than 100 times by other academic researchers.
