Chen Shuming

Assistant Professor

Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering


PhD, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Assistant Professor




Dr. Shuming CHEN received his BS degree in optoelectronics from South China University of Technology (SCUT) in 2005. And then, due to his excellent academic record (2nd/55), he admitted to the graduate school of Sun Yat-Sen University (SYSU) with exemption for entrance examination, where he obtained his ME degree in 2008. He then studied with Professor Hoi-Sing Kwok at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and received his PhD degree in Electronic and Computer Engineering in 2012. From Sep. 2012-May 2013, he was a postdoctoral researcher in Center for Display Research, HKUST and a part time senior engineer in Sinodisplay Technology Co. Ltd., where he was developing active-matrix (AM) organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).  In June 2013, he officially joined the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, SUSTC as an Assistant Professor.   

His current research focuses on (AM) OLEDs and QD-LEDs for display and solid-state lighting applications. He has published over 30 SCI papers (impact factor>3.5) on international journals including Advanced Functional Materials, Organic Electronics, Journal of Materials Chemistry, Optics Express etc with more than 800 citations. He is a member of SID and OSA. He was the recipient of 2013 HKIS “Young Scientist Award” (Honorable Mention, Runner-Up) and 2013 Shenzhen “Overseas High-Caliber Personnel Award” (Peacock Plan B-Class).
