Chen received his Ph.D. degree in experimental/cognitive psychology in 1987 from the State University of New York at Stony Brook (now known as Stony Brook University). He has a broad interest in the theoretical and applied issues related to attention and language processing. His fields of interest include cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, neuropsychology, psychometrics and biostatistics.

Most of his research can be summarized under the conceptual framework of artifact-augmented cognition. Under this framework, cognition is not an isolated phenomenon, but almost always operates in the context of a human created artifactual environment. How cognition and artifacts interact and mutually influence each other is an issue that lies at the center of this research orientation. On the theoretical side, the focus of research is more on cognitive diversity than on cognitive universal, i.e., how cognition varies across cultures, languages, and artifacts (e.g., paper and pencil vs. computer and keyboard). On the applied side, Chen focuses on studying how the design of artifacts can better fit the human cognitive system and ensure a net gain of sufficient benefits.
