Hi, I'm Kan Chen!

Currently I am a senior research scientist in Waymo Research. I was working in Facebook Research during 2019 - 2021. I got my PhD and master degrees from computer science department of the University of Southern California under the supervision of Professor Ram Nevatia. Before that, I got my bachelor degree in Tsinghua University. In Waymo research, my research interests lie in:

  • Behavior Prediction & Planning
  • Neural Architecture Search
  • Semi-supervised Learning

My published papers are listed in my google scholar page. More details can be found in my publication page. Please contact me if you are interested.
