Project Leader

Quan Chen received his Ph.D. degree in the Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University, Japan in 2011. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the Pennsylvania State University, he has been at the current position as a Professor at the Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences since 2015. He was awarded with the JSPS scholarship in 2009 and the “Thousand Youth Plan” national fund in 2015. He is now a committee member of the Chinese Society of Rheology. His current research interests include structure-property relationship of polymer blends, copolymers, nanocomposites, and ion-containing polymers.

associate researcher

Zhijie Zhang received his B.S. in 2001, M.S in 2005, and Ph.D. in 2008 from Jilin University. His PhD research was on phase separation of binary distributed high-density polyethylene, which was advised by Professor Zhongyuan Lu in Jilin University and co-advised by Professor Yongfeng Meng of Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry. His expertise is on structural characterization techniques in particular X-ray scattering.
