chenjie Assistant Professor

Office:College of Science P5103

Personal Profile

Jie Chen is an Assistant Professor at Southern University of Science and Technology. She graduated from Peking University with a PhD. She was a postdoctoral fellow at the Physics Division of Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and the Facility of Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) at Michigan State University before becoming a Physicist Staff Scientist at ANL. Her main research interests are to deepen the understanding the nuclear structure and the nuclear force through direct nuclear reactions such as single-particle transfer and elastic/inelastic scattering away from stability. She has conducted experimental research at RCNP in Osaka University, ATLAS inf Argonne National Laboratory, FRIB in Michigan State University, and ISOLDE at CERN as an spokesperson. The results have been published as more than 40 articles in international journals, and she has made several invited presentations at international conferences.
