报 告 人：Zhan Chen（陈战）教授
报告题目：Molecular Structures of Polymer and Biological Molecules at Buried Interfaces
Professor Zhan Chen received his BS degree in Chemistry from Peking University, MS degree in Physics from Chinese Academy of Sciences, PhD degree in Chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley, and did his postdoctoral research in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He then worked at the University of Michigan as an assistant professor (2000-2005), an associate professor with tenure (2005-2009), and was promoted to a full professor with tenure in 2009. Currently he is a professor of chemistry, macromolecular science and engineering, biophysics and applied physics at the University of Michigan.
Professor Chen received Beckman Young Investigator Award, Dow Corning Professorship, US National Science Foundation CAREER Award, and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Invitation Fellowship. He is a senior editor of Langmuir and an associate editor-in-chief of Chinese Chemical Letters. Professor Chen is a Fellow of American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and a Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Professor Chen’s research is focused on the molecular level understanding of structures of polymers and biological molecules at interfaces using nonlinear optical spectroscopic techniques. He published 270 peer reviewed research articles and gave more than 300 invited seminars.
