Dr. Yue Meng (Richard) Chen is the Founder and CEO of Shanghai-based HiCling Technology, a consumer health technology start-up. He received the Ph.D. degree and M.A.Sc in School of Engineering Science from the Simon Fraser University (SFU), Vancouver, Canada. He received the B.Sc in Electrical Engineering from the Zhejiang University. He was nominated as the most inspiring graduate student of SFU's Department of Engineering over the past 50 years in 2015.
He was awarded Shanghai Thousand Leader Plan by Shanghai Science Committee in December 2015.
During his doctoral program, Dr. Chen was awarded the NSERC Alexander Graham Bell Canada Doctoral Scholarship. With four US patents and eleven China patents to his name and now the second year into his fourth start-ups, Dr. Chen is well on his way to joining the telephone pioneer's impressive track record of technological innovation and engineering.
"I love to create stuff for everyday people and see the immediate impact of my work...they are small steps but I feel like I am changing the world with each project."
Dr. Chen's current challenge: to creating China°Os most all-encompassing and integrated health management device. The Cling tracks and analyzes exercise, sleep patterns, skin temperature, and heart rate data. This information is then used to produce behavioral recommendations based on the user's stated health goals.
"Peoples in Shanghai are so busy, their lives fragmented. They might feel unhealthy but don't have the time to figure out how to get better. This device is about coaching them to lead a healthier life."
Though the company is barely two years old, Dr. Chen has already raised 4.5 million dollars US for their product and successfully released the first generation of their product.
Always eager to develop new and not yet imagined products, it's no surprise that Chen's previous experience working in and around Silicon Valley includes designing one of the first car geographic positioning systems chips (Centrality Comm., 300 million USD acquisition), a box that could be plugged into analog phones to enable them to make calls for free (Obihai Tech., top ranking on Amazon VoIP devices) and a gaming system which aimed to improve gamer°Os health and fitness by requiring players to do a certain amount of exercise before they could access the console (Striiv, million users world wide).
After decades of constant drive to design in Silicon Valley, Dr. Chen returned home to Shanghai and gathered his classmates and friends to found HiCling Tech, and aimed to take wearable technology to a new level.
"After decades of design experience in the valley and Ph.D. research in SFU, I could see things in a deep way, foundational way that I can apply to different fields. Any project I am working on it might look different but the fundamentals do not change."
One thing's for certain, no matter what country or field he's working in, Dr. Chen and his team will keep making tools to make people's lives better.
