Dr. Yixing Chen is a Senior Scientific Engineering Associate with the Building Technology and Urban Systems Division. He currently focuses on urban system researches, including 3D city data models, city data analytics, and urban scale building energy modeling and retrofit analysis. He is the Lead Developer of the City Building Energy Saver (CityBES), a web-based platform to support the urban system researches. He also let the development of Commercial Building Energy Saver (CBES), a web-based tool for energy benchmarking, electric load shape analysis, and preliminary and detailed retrofit analysis using OpenStudio and EnergyPlus simulations. He also works on occupant behavior research to evaluate the impacts of occupant behaviors on building energy performance.

He received Ph.D. from Syracuse University, USA. He got his M.S. in the Department of Building Science from National University of Singapore, and his B.S degree in Building Science Department from Tsinghua University in China.
