Dr. Chau-Chyun Chen

Chen comes to Texas Tech from AspenTech, where he served as Vice President of Technology. One of the founders of AspenTech in 1981, Chen was instrumental in developing the innovative first-principles modeling approach that AspenTech brought to the chemicals industry. He also pioneered process modeling techniques for difficult chemical systems such as those involving electrolytes, polymers, and pharmaceuticals. He is especially well known in academic circles for developing the electrolyte NRTL activity coefficient model for modeling electrolyte solutions and was elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) in 2005 for his contributions to molecular thermodynamics and process modeling.
