Professor Yong Kang Chen, FIMechE, is the research group leader in Energy and Sustainable Design and Acting Head of Automotive, Mechanical and Mechatronic Division in the School of Engineering and Technology at the University of Hertfordshire. He gained a BEng and an MSc from Taiyuan University of Technology followed by a PhD from the University of Birmingham in 1996. He was a post-doctoral research fellow at the Queen Mary and Westfield College followed by an honorary post-doctoral research fellow in the University of Birmingham until 2002.  He has published more than 80 refereed papers. two chapters of two books, and have two patents. His main research activities lie in nano-materials and applied mechanics with his interdisciplinary expertise in linear and nonlinear finite element analysis with materials and structural integrity. His research interests also include renewable energy and carbon storage systems.  His work in Advanced Materials and Mechanics, such as wear and friction of polymer composites is internationally recognised. He has been invited to present his work in many international events.  He is passionate about responding to industry for their needs and is proactively consulting and collaborating widely in industry. He believes very much in applied science in meeting the needs of industry. He has attracted a good size of income for the School in the business facing front. A wide range of projects have been funded by EPSRC, TSB, EU FP7 and industry with over £1.0 million. He acted as the lead Guest Editor of an international journal, and is an Editorial Board Member of Chinese Journal of Mechanical Engineering and an active referee for a number of academic journals.
