Prof. Walter Chen holds several academic degrees from leading universities both in Taiwan (ROC) and the United States: B.S. in Civil Engineering (Taiwan University), M.S. in Geotechnical Engineering (Purdue University), M.S. in Computer and Information Science (Purdue University), and Ph.D. in Geotechnical Engineering (Purdue University). He has worked in both construction (Joint Venture of TPE and RODIO, Taipei Metro project) and software development (re:Member Data Services, Indianapolis) before becoming a professor at the National Taipei University of Technology. Since joining the university, Prof. Chen has worked on dozens of research projects, received three patents, and published research in many diverse fields, including seismic pipeline analysis, soil bio-engineering application, slope stability with particle swarm optimization (PSO), and soil erosion modeling. Among his research contributions were the proposal of the Revised Sediment Delivery Distributed model (RSEDD), the application of slope units to soil erosion analysis, the use of machine learning for erosion depth prediction, and the integration of PSO and slope stability analysis. In the past, Prof. Chen has served as a guest co-editor of special issues of Ecological Engineering (2010), Remote Sensing (2020), and Sustainability (2021). He earned the University's Best Mentor award (2012), the Outstanding Teacher Award (2016), and the Best Mentor award (2016). Before receiving his tenure, Prof. Chen was a visiting scholar at the University of Memphis and the University of Maine in the summer of 2001 and 2002, respectively.
