Biographical Information

Ke Chen received his Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from The Ohio State University in 2009. His undergraduate education was received at Hefei University of Technology, in Hefei, Anhui Province, China in 2005. From October to December in 2009, he was with Research and Development Division of Hitachi America, Ltd., Farmington Hills, Michigan. Since January 2010, he has been with Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where he is currently Associate Professor of the School of Materials Science and Engineering. He is now serving as a Key Reader in the Board of Review of Metallurgical and Materials Transactions, and also serving as a member in the Electron Backscatter Diffraction Committee, Chinese Electron Microscopy Society.


Research Interests

 1. Friction stir welding/processing (FSW/P)
 Current research involves the development of friction stir welding of dissimilar materials, in situ composite synthesis via friction stir processing for increased strength and thermal stability
 2.Microstructural control of wrought Ni-based superalloys
