Patrick P. Lin

Presidential Innovation Fellow / Senior Advisor at White House

Washington, District of Columbia

I am currently working for the US Federal Government as a Presidential Fellow to lead innovation across a variety of research and public policy areas including artificial intelligence, system of systems autonomy, and distributed control systems.

Most recently, I led the autonomous driving team for Ford in Asia Pacific. A major part of my responsibilities included innovating transportation ecosystems for the cities of tomorrow. Previously with Ford, I managed the corporate strategy teams as well as the Smart Mobility teams in the Asia Pacific region.

Before joining the automotive sector, I served as Vice President at Lion Travel, JWI Marketing and Xinmedia under the Lion Group travel and lifestyle conglomerate where I also served as Director of Strategy.

With over 25 years experience spanning various industries, I have had the opportunity to be a strategist, technologist, innovator, general manager and leader in both private and public enterprises in the United States and throughout Asia.

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of California (Berkeley and San Diego) and was an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
