Julie Chen

Julie Chen is currently the Director of the Nanomanufacturing Center of Excellence at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, where she is a professor of mechanical engineering and is also co-Director of the Advanced Composite Materials and Textile Research Laboratory. Chen was the Program Director of the Materials Processing and Manufacturing and the Nanomanufacturing Programs in the Division of Design, Manufacture, and Industrial Innovation at the National Science Foundation from 2002 to 2004.

She received her Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. in mechanical engineering from MIT. Chen has been on the faculty at Boston University, a NASA-Langley Summer Faculty Fellow, a visiting researcher at the University of Orleans and Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Arts & Metiers (ENSAM-Paris), and an invited participant in the National Academy of Engineering, Frontiers of Engineering Program. In addition to co-organizing several national and international symposia and workshops on nanomanufacturing and composites manufacturing for NSF, ASME, ASC, and ESAFORM, Chen has served on editorial boards, advisory committees, and review panels for several journals and federal agencies. Her research interests are in the mechanical behavior and deformation of fiber structures, fiber assemblies, and composite materials, with an emphasis on nanomanufacturing and composites processing. Examples include analytical modeling and novel experimental approaches to electro-spinning of nanofibers, and forming of textile reinforcements for structural (biomedical to automotive) applications.
