Dr. Lin Chase is an experienced “tech” executive with an extensive track record in the successful development and delivery of artificial intelligence, data, and networking technologies in complex business environments. She spent 35 years applying emerging software technologies around the world in the US, Europe, the Middle East, India, and East Asia. In early 2020, the COVID crisis chased Lin back to California from South Korea, where she was working on infusing the world’s first 5G network with AI capabilities. Not long after she returned, she began teaching as an adjunct faculty member in the new, innovate project-based learning program in computer science at MSU. She loved it so much that she jumped in with both feet, moved to Minnesota, and is now full-time faculty in the program.
