Husky Bites presents Special Guest Bo Chen

Professor of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics, and Electrical and Computer Engineering
Michigan Technological University


Joe Oncken '20
PhD Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics
Michigan Technological University
Postdoctoral Research Associate at Idaho National Laboratory


What is electrified transportation? At Michigan Tech, Prof. Bo Chen and her research team envision an all-electric future. They develop advanced control algorithms to build the nation’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure, with more efficient hybrid electric vehicles and the kind of advanced sensing technologies that allow for predictive control in real time. These technologies enable the kind of vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication that will reduce our nation's energy consumption. During Husky Bites, Prof. Chen and alum Dr. Joe Oncken, who earned his PhD at Michigan Tech—he's now a postdoctoral researcher at Idaho National Lab—will share how engineers go about designing and creating the crucial elements of an all-electric vehicle ecosystem.
