Personal Statement

My name is Shuqun Chen, I am an Associate Professor and Postgraduate Supervisor at the Faculty of Materials and Manufacturing in Beijing University of Technology, China. I received my bachelor degree in Materials Forming and Control Engineering from Northwestern Polytechnical University at 2010. Then I went to Huazhong University of Science and Technology and got my master degree in Materials Processing Engineering. On September 2012, I headed to Queen Mary University of London and worked with Dr. Russell Binions in an area of Thin Films and Coatings. I received the PhD in Materials Science at June 2016.
