|Dr Chen completed his doctorate in electrical engineering with research focus on electrophysiology at University of Missouri in 2002. Then he did his post-doctoral training in Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard University where he conducted research on nanopore based single-molecule sensing. In 2005, Dr. Chen joined Division of Bioengineering at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) as an assistant professor. He is now an associate professor of bioengineering. Dr. Chen’s group works at the interface of nanotechnology, biophysics, and biology in the efforts to develop novel biosensors and to study cell membrane physiology. He has published >50 papers in leading journals such as Advanced Materials, Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Nano Letters, Physical Review Letters, Small, Biosensors & Bioelectronics, ACS Nano, Analytical Chemistry, Biophysical Journal, Journal of General Physiology, etc.
