Dr. Yue Chen studied at Oxford University and Beihang University, and obtained his PhD degree in 2010. Before joining HKU, he was a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at Columbia University in the City of New York and a T. S. Kê Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Institute of Metal Research, CAS. His research interests focus on materials physics for electrical and thermal transports, including

1. Anharmonic phonon-phonon couplings and thermal transport properties in crystalline solids

2. Developing first-principles interatomic potentials to bridge the gap between electronic and atomistic approaches

3. Discovering novel material properties under extreme conditions

4. Alloys, intermetallics, thermoelectrics, and low-dimensional materials

5. Density functional theory, inelastic neutron scattering, tight-binding approximations, bond-order potential theory, and synchrotron x-ray diffraction
