Dr Daqing Chen's main professional expertise and research interests are in the areas of business intelligence, data mining, intelligent information processing, and SAS system. 

Dr Chen joined the University in July 1999. Prior to this, Daqing worked as a Research Fellow in the System, Electronics and Information Laboratory, IRESTE, University of Nantes, Nantes, France (June 1998 - July 1999), a Research Associate in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (December 1997 – June 1998), and as a Post-doctoral Researcher and then an Associate Professor at the National Key Laboratory of Radar Signal Processing, Xidian University, Xian, China (February 1994 – November 1997). 

Dr Chen is currently the Pathway Leader for BSc and HND Business Intelligence. He is also the leader of the Public Analytics research group.

Dr Chen's primary teaching areas are business intelligence, data mining, and database systems. He was the first academic to teach data mining and business intelligence at the University. Since 2006 he has taught various MSc and BSc modules on data mining and business intelligence, including Introduction to Business Intelligence, Principles of Data Mining, Data Mining and Business Analytics, and Data Mining and Data Warehousing. He has effectively used his research findings and case studies in the development of curriculum material in his teaching.

In recent years, Dr Chen has conducted several business-oriented data mining projects across a variety of industry sectors, including student retention analysis and prediction (London South Bank University), donor segmentation for not-for-profit organization (The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, UK), and consumer-centric business intelligence for online retailers (The Rex International, Ltd, UK).
