Dr Otto Chen

Postdoctoral Research Fellow


I am a postdoctoral research fellow in Centre for Water Systems in the University of Exeter. My academic expertise covers environmental management, environmental engineering, hydroinformatics, policy research, environmental modelling and simulation, and heritage studies. My research interest features interdisciplinary exploration with methodology particularly bridging social science approaches with science and engineering, as the world is gradually not merely focusing on natural or built environment separately, but needs a holistic view on natural and built environment simultaneously which is my passion and speciality. My works also feature international collaboration. With more than 20-year career development in industry, I had led a team that played a leading role dominating several environmental policy developments in Taiwan. I am currently also appointed as a technical advisor in MWH (now part of Stantec), a global leading environmental engineering consultancy company.
