Prof. Bing Chen is Associate Professor in the Dalian University of Technology and is based at the Panjin campus. After received PhD in Ocean Engineering in 1998 at the State Key Laboratory of Coastal and Offshore Engineering (SLCOE), and following two years of postdoctoral research in CFD at the Department of Engineering Mechanics in DUT, he works in the Department of Hydraulic Engineering in the same university since July, 2000. He was a Visiting Scholar to the University of Western Australia in 2001, and to the Institute for Energy System of the University of Edinburgh in 2011. He transferred from Dalian to the School of Ocean Science and Technology at Panjin campus of DUT since 2013. His research interests covers many aspects of ocean engineering, including wave loads, local scour, and coupling interaction between fluid and structures, mainly by numerical simulations. He has extended his research into the area of marine renewable energy since 2011. He is the PI of the NSFC 2014 general program “Development of a new vertical axis tidal turbine-submerged carrier system”. He was the PI of exchange program “Development of a new buoy-type energy converter” funded jointly by NSFC and Royal Society of Edinburgh (NSFC-RSE, 2013), and the technical director of Special Funding Project (2011) “Laboratory investigation and sea trail of new vertical axis tidal turbine and direct-driven generator system” funded by the State Oceanic Administration (SOA) of China, led the laboratory investigations and took part in the sea trail of the tidal device. He is now serving as the PI of Chinese team of this ResIn project.
