Zhihong Chen received her B.S. degree in physics from Fudan University in 1998, and her Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Florida in 2003. After two years of postdoctoral research at IBM T.J. Watson research center, she became a research staff member in the Physical Science Department. Her research focused on design and fabrication of high performance carbon based devices and circuits. In 2008, she was appointed as the manager of the Carbon Technology Group at IBM, where she was in charge of evaluating the potential of carbon materials and the development of novel carbon based technologies for commercial applications. Since Oct. 2010, she joined the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University, as an Associate Professor. Her current research interests include understanding physical properties of nano-materials and designing and fabricating novel nanoscale devices and circuits for various applications.
