Prof. Chen started his academic career as a Junior Lecturer at Hefei University of Technology, China in 1987 after obtaining his MEng degree in the same University. In 1992, he was awarded a one-year visiting scholarship to work in the University of Reading, U.K. After completing the visit, he was financially supported by the Overseas Research Scholarship (ORS) awarded by the Committee of Vice Chancellors and Principals (CVCP) in the UK, and a European Union research grant to pursue his PhD at Reading. Upon obtaining his PhD, he went to Singapore in April 1997 joining the newly founded Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), a national research institute funded by the Singapore government. In March 2000, he moved to Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore as an Assistant Professor, and has since been promoted to Associate Professor and Professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering.
