Professor Lidong Chen received his Ph.D. from Tohoku University in Japan (1990). Since 1990, he has worked with Riken Corporation (Chief Engineer), the National Aerospace Laboratory, Tohoku University (Associate Professor) and University of Michigan (Visiting Scholar). He joined the Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SICCAS) as a professor in 2001. At present, he is the director of the State Key Lab of High Performance Ceramics and Superfine Microstructures and the Co-Editor-in-Chief of npj Computational Materials. Professor Chen’s research focuses on advanced thermoelectric (TE) materials and devices.. Prof. Chen’s research areas include wide-spectrum phonon scattering in cage-structured compounds, liquid-like phonon transport behaviour in ionic conductors, and high-throughput explorations of novel thermoelectric materials, all of which greatly promote TE performance in recent years. In addition, he has developed high efficiency thermoelectric devices using advanced TE materials, which has been a significant contribution to the field of thermoelectrics.
