About Me

Chien-Pin Chen

Hello! I received my master degree of Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I am interested in Robotics, Software development, and Self-driving Car.
Before that, I was an engineer at Robotic Control Department of Precision Machinery Research Development Center in Taiwan. I am working on developing kinematic algorithms of the industrial robot arm and CAD-Based Application. I also a member of the team focus on developing software controller of the industrial robot.

Work Experience

Precision Machinery Research and Development Center
Engineer at Robot Control Department

Interests and Passion

On my leisure time, I like to play basketball with friends, watch movie or drama. And, recently, I start brewing coffee by myself.
