Kang Ping Chen
Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Arizona State University, USA
Prof. Kang Ping Chen received his B.S. in Mechanics in 1982 from Peking University, China and Ph.D. in Fluid Mechanics from the University of Minnesota under the guidance of Prof. Daniel D.Joseph. He was on the faculty of Clarkson University from 1990 to 1991 and moved to Arizona State University in 1991, where he is currently an Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy. Prof. Chen’s research interest include multiphase flows, drag reduction, airplane de-icing, interfacial instabilities and flow in porous media. He has published extensively in highly reputable journals and his works have been frequently cited in the literature. He served as a Guest Editor for a special issue of Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics. He was a recipient of a 1991 Presidential Young Investigator Award from the National Science Foundation.
