  • De Chen (born 1962) is a professor in catalysis at the Department of Chemical Engineering, NTNU since 2001 (associate professor 1998-2001). He is the member of Norwegian Academy of Technological Science. He got his Master degree in chemical reaction engineering at the East China University of Science and Technology, Shanghai, China, in 1988, and got his doctor degree in catalysis at NTNU in 1998. His main research interests are engaged into four research lines: 1) Industrial catalysis in particular for natural gas conversion, 2) DFT and microkinetic modeling of surface reactions and multiscale modeling with highly integrated microkinetic modeling with pellet, reactor and process modeling, 3) Catalysis for new technologies including CO2 capture and conversion, hydrogen technology and biomass conversion and 4) Synthesis and applications of carbon nanomaterials in catalysis and energy storage. He is author and coauthor of more than 300 scientific papers in pre-reviewed journals with more than 9000 citations and H-index of 55.
