Han Chen, Associate professor of School of Materials Science and Engineering, Shanghai Jiaotong University. After obtaining his PhD from Fukui University in Japan, he was a postdoctoral researcher in National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) worked on dyes-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) from 2010 to 2011. After then, he is working as an associate professor in Shanghai Jiaotong University on device and performances of perovskite solar cells. His current research interests involve fundamental and application research in perovskite solar cells, dye-sensitized solar cells.
