Dr. Lin has over 25 years of technical and managerial experience in the fields of biomedical and aerospace engineering. He served as the Senior Scientist and Principal Staff Engineer at Kriton Medical, the predecessor of HeartWare International (now Medtronic), and led the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) design of the third-generation ventricular assist device HVAD®. Later, he joined Honeywell as the principal aerodynamicist and leader of the global aerodynamics Technical Excellence Team (TET) in the United States. He also served as the chief aerodynamic designer of ECS turbines and compressors for Airbus A350, Boeing 777 and other passenger aircrafts, becoming a well-known expert in the field of aviation fluid mechanics. Dr. Lin co-founded CH Biomedical with Dr. Chen and shoulders full responsibility for the operations of CH Biomedical USA, Inc. Dr. Lin has rich experience in CFD and artificial heart blood flow optimization with 15 turbomachinery and VAD related U.S. and international patents. He translated these experiences into the CH-VAD® design by putting forward the unique and advanced flow path structure and driving the core technology R&D for CH-VAD® in fluid dynamics.
Dr. Lin graduated from Fudan University with his bachelor's degree in applied mechanics and graduate studies in biofluid mechanics. He attained his master's degree in fluid mechanics and doctoral degree in computational fluid dynamics from the University of Maryland, USA. He is adjunct professor of Fudan University enjoying international reputation in the fluid dynamics field. He is also a member of the International Society for Mechanical Circulatory Support, American Society for Artificial International Organs (served on program committee), American Society of Mechanical Engineers, American Society for Testing and Materials (serving on medical and surgical materials and devices committee), and a life member of Chinese Scholars Association Southern California. He also served as the president and chairman of the Society of Chinese American Aerospace Engineers.
