Mr. Chen was part of the JSF (Joint Strike Fighter) program for developing a short takeoff, vertical landing engine which was a competitive program between Lockheed Martin and Boeing Aircraft and was featured on the award-winning program NOVA on the Public Broadcasting Service network.
After leaving Pratt & Whitney, Mr. Chen joined CED as a mechanical engineer to apply his knowledge and aerospace experience to such areas as industrial machinery accidents, human factors, product liability, accident reconstruction, slip and fall accidents, auto accident reconstruction, and fire cause and origin. Mr. Chen holds a Professional Engineers License in the states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island. Mr. Chen is a JLG certified trainer for boom lifts and aerial work platforms; an ACTAR certified accident reconstructionist and a Certified Fire Explosion Investigator (CFEI) from the National Association of Fire Investigators (NAFI). He is also a member of the National Association of Fire Investigators(NAFI) and in 2007 attended the National Seminar on Fire Analysis Litigation.
Since his arrival at CED Mr. Chen has investigated a variety of product liabilities, industrial machinery, auto accident, slip or trip and fall and fire-related cases. His background in electrical, mechanical and civil areas give him the technical skills to successfully provide inclusive investigations and expert witness testimony when determining cause and origin of fire-related cases.
