            Professor CHEN Bingzhen is a specialist in chemical engineering, especially in process system engineering. She received her B.Sc. degree and Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Moscow University of Chemical Technology after Mendeleev, the former Union States of Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR) in 1959 and 1962, respectively. In a subsequent period of about 50 years she has devoted herself to teaching and research in chemical engineering, particularly in process systems engineering, in successive positions as Lecturer, Associate Professor and Professor (1984) in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Tsinghua University.
            She was elected a member of Chinese Academy of Engineering in 2005.
            She is one of the founding members of the process systems engineering division in the Department of Chemical Engineering, Tsinghua University. Her major research interests include optimal synthesis of total site energy system, development and application of a new parallel hybrid Multi-objective optimization method for the periodic operation of the industrial naphtha pyrolysis process and bio-fuel supply chain network optimization, chemical process inherent safety, application of wavelet transform theory and artificial intelligence approach and numerical methods to complex dynamic process modeling, fault diagnosis, data reconciliation and real time optimization. A strategy of developing on-line optimization systems based on combining flow-sheeting simulation and  optimization was presented. The process optimization package has been integrated with the developed steady-state data reconciliation approach and implemented for the real time optimization in the industrial crude distillation plants successfully. For her contributions to the field of process systems engineering, she awarded 2 National and 13 Provincial or Ministerial Awards of Science and Technical Progresses. She is the (co-)author of more than 250 publications since 1985. She is a member of the editorial advisory board of the international journal “Computers & Chemical Engineering” and an Associate editor-in chief of the Journal of “Chinese Journal of Chemical Engineering” (international). She has chaired 8th International Symposium on Process Systems Engineering, held in Kunming city of China during Jan.
