Dr. Zeng-Bing Chen is a Professor of Physics at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and PI of the Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at the Microscale. He has been selected to the Hundred Talents Program by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (2006), National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars (2011, the NNSF of China), and the Yangtze Professor (2012, the Ministry of Education, PRC).
Dr. Chen was born in Jiangsu, China, in 1972. He received a B.S. degree in geochemistry in 1995, and a Ph.D. degree in theoretical physics in 2000, both from University of Science and Technology of China. From 07.2000 to 12.2001, 01.2002-12.2003, 01.2004-now he worked as a lecturer, an associate professor and a professor, respectively, at Department of Modern Physics, University of Science and Technology of China. 04.2004-09.2004 and 10.2004-09.2006 he was a Humboldt Research Fellow and Marie Curie Fellow (European Commission), respectively, at Physikalisches Institut, Universität Heidelberg, Germany. He published more than 60 papers in prestigious journals (Rev. Mod. Phys., Nature, Nature Photonics, Nature Physics, PNAS, and Physical Review Letters, etc.).
