陈弦简介

Professor Xian Chen is currently an Assistant Professor in the department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. She received her Ph.D. and M.S. in Solid Mechanics from the department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics, University of Minnesota, United States. Afterwards, she worked at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab as the ALS Postdoctoral Fellow. Prof Chen was working at the Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering, Caltech from 2015 to 2016 as visiting faculty.

The research of Prof Chen’s group integrates the theories of mechanics of crystalline solids with advanced structural characterization methods and algorithms to develop new phase-transforming materials having desirable properties. These materials have emerging applications in medical devices, microelectronics and energy conversion devices. In 2015, Prof Chen received the Early Career Award for the GRF grant - Investigation of microstructure-reversibility relationship for phase-transforming materials.
