  • Biography: Professor Zhan Chen received his BS degree from Peking University and his M.S. degree from Chinese Academy of Sciences. He obtained his PhD degree 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) and 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, and applied physics at the University of Michigan. Professor Chen received Beckman Young Investigator Award (2003), Dow Corning Professorship (2003-2006), US National Science Foundation CAREER Award (2005), and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Invitation Fellowship (2006). He is a guest professor at Jinan University and at Southeast University. 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. His research group developed systematic approaches to apply nonlinear optical spectroscopic techniques to elucidate polymer surface structures in water, buried polymer/polymer and polymer/metal interfacial structures, and interfacial structures of peptides and proteins. He has published more than 120 journal articles and has presented more than 160 invited talks including invited seminars at UC-Berkeley, Princeton University, Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, Northwestern University, University of Toronto, McGill University, University of Cambridge, KTH, Nagoya University, Hokkaido University, Peking University, and Tsinghua University.
