Personal profile


Chao works in the Faculty of Engineering at Monash University as a Senior Lecturer.

The Laboratory of Motion Generation and Analysis (LMGA) is directed by Dr Chen. We are interested in innovative motion generation for versatile edge-cutting applications, and conducting fundamental researches on motion analysis. Our research activities include reconfigurable robotic arms, parallel robotic manipulators, virtual reality, and theory of robotics and mechanisms. The research team is consisted of research assistants, post-graduates, visiting scholars and HDR students, and distinct undergraduates. The lab receives funds from the Australian Research Council (ARC), and multiple internal grant bodies. We are keeping strong national and international collaborations, including France, US, China, and Canada. If interested, you are welcome to contact me for more information.
