Prof. Dr. Chung-Jen Tseng
Department of Mechanical Engineering
National Central University
Topic: Low-Pt catalysts by laser processing for PEM fuel cell
Prof. Chung-Jen Tseng received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from National Chiao Tung University in 1986 and 1988 respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin (U.S.A.) in 1995. He received NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization) Fellowship from the Japanese government and worked on hydrogen energy in Yokohama from 1995 to 1998. He joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering of National Central University in 1998.
Prof. Tseng had worked on vacuum super insulation, gaseous and liquid fuel combustion in porous medium burner, subsonic and supersonic impinging jet, thermal design of large electrical transformers, laser – tissue interaction, numerical simulation of transport phenomena in porous media, microscale heat transfer, and cathode material development for lithium batteries. His current research interest is in energy conversion and storage technologies, such as simulation of transport phenomena in electrochemical processes, innovative PEM fuel cell and stack design, SOFC system analysis, and solar hydrogen production by photoelectrochemical process.
Prof. Tseng also served as the General Secretary of the Combustion Institute of Taiwan from 2010 to 2014. He is an Associate Editor of Journal of Energy Engineering, and serves as editorial board member of several journals. His research was honored by the University with Research Excellence Award in 2013-2016, Distinguished Professorship in 2017-2019, and Patent Excellence Award in 2013, 2015 and 2016.
