Dr.-Ing. Kuan-Hsun Chen is a tenured assistant professor at the group of Computer Architecture and Embedded Systems (CAES) at the University of Twente in the Netherlands.
From Aug. 2019 to Aug. 2021, he was a Postdoc at Design and Automation for Embedded Systems group, TU Dortmund University in Germany. He earned his Ph.D. degree (05.2019) in Computer Science (Dr.-Ing.) also from TU Dortmund University with the highest distinction (summa cum laude), under the supervision of Prof. Jian-Jia Chen. He earned his master’s degree in Computer Science (2013) and his bachelor's degree in the Interdisciplinary Program of Humanities and Social Sciences (2011) at National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan.
He currently serves as Associate Editor for the AIMS Applied Computing and Intelligence and Guest Editor for the Transactions of Cyber-Physical Systems and the Journal of Signal Processing Systems. Furthermore, he has published 60+ scientific works in top peer-reviewed journals (e.g., TC and TECS) and international conferences (e.g., EMSOFT, RTSS, RTAS, DAC, ECML, PKDD, LCTES). He also serves in several Technical Program Committee (TPC) for many premier conferences and a reviewer for many peer-reviewed journals and conferences in computer science.
He is one founder of the Dutch Real-Time System Community, funded by 4TU.NIRICT. He also holds one best student paper award at RTCSA’18, and one dissertation award at TU Dortmund University (2019), and one best paper nomination at DATE’21. Moreover, he was granted by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) one exchange project and by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) a postdoctoral fellowship in 2021. He has been a volunteer mentor in ESA Summer of Code in Space (2017) and Google Summer of Code since 2016 for open-source development on a popular real-time operating system, RTEMS. He is also a member of HiPEAC.
