Biography

Professor Chen is well-known and respected internationally for his work in nanomaterials and nanotechnology.  His invention of a ball-milling and annealing method for the mass production of nanotubes and nanowires has made a significant impact on the emerging nanotube industry.  The team he has put together is a world leader in nanomaterials production and commercialisation.  His current research is focused on developing different synthetic methods (ball milling, mechanochemistry, chemical/physical vapour deposition, and 3D printing) and new applications (energy storage in batteries, capacitors, and fuel cells) for a variety of nanomaterials including nanotubes (C and BN), nanosheets, nanowires, nanorods, nanoparticles, and nano thin films(graphene). Professor Chen is the Director of the ARC Research Hub of New Safe and Reliable Energy Storage and Conversion Technologies.

Professor Ying (Ian) Chen obtained his Bs from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China and a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Paris-Sud, Orsay, France.  He had worked at the Australian National University, Canberra for 15 years before moving to Deakin University in 2009.  He has published 350 publications with 25% articles published in the international top journals of impact factor above 10, and listed by the ISI Web of Knowledge as the top author on two topics of "boron nitride" and "ball milling", indicating his substantial contribution to these research areas. His publications have been cited more than 18,500 times with an H factor of 69 (google Scholar), 62 (Scopus).  He has contributed several bestselling books on nanotechnology published by CRC Press and Elsevier. Professor Chen has been awarded several prestigeious awards including  QEII/ARF fellowship from the Australian Research Council.  He has given invited presentations at international conferences every year.  Prof Chen's team at Deakin University is conducting world-leading research in nanotechnology and advanced battery technology with the quality of well above the international standard as recognised by Australian Research Council's five-star ranking in the last round of Excellence in Research for Australia.  The outcomes of their research have been commercialised with substantial investment from Australian industries through three new start-up companies.
