Kevin Chen is a junior at the Academy for Mathematics, Science, and Engineering in Rockaway. He is currently conducting research at Stevens Institute of Technology on using virtual reality to optimize motor and cognitive post-stroke rehabilitation. In the past, Kevin has also authored a research paper evaluating and improving the A* shortest path algorithm on real road networks. In addition to serving as his school's math club president, he is a Columbia University Science Honors Program scholar, an American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME) qualifier, and placed first at the NJ Technology Student Association (TSA) High School State Conference in the “Debating Technological Issues” event. As an active member of his school's debate team, he has won awards in debate competitions at the national level, such as the Harvard National Forensics Tournament. In the future, he hopes to expand his work in biomedical engineering and virtual reality to improve patients' physical and cognitive rehabilitation.
