About Kuan-Chen

My name is CHENG Kuan-Chen (鄭光成), receiving my Ph.D. degree of agricultural and biological engineering at The Penn State University in 2010. I have more than 15 years of research experiences in the areas of microbial bioprocessing and fermentation.

I am now an associate professor in the Graduate Institute of Food Science and Technology, National Taiwan University since Aug, 2015. Before I returned to Taiwan, I was offered as a research associate in the Chemical and Environmental Engineering Dept. at The University of Arizona, where I also conducted research for the National Alliance for Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts (NAABB).  I am now an active member of the Institute of Biological Engineering (IBE), Agricultural Chemical Society of Taiwan, the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE), and the honor societies Gamma Sigma Delta (agricultural) and Alpha Epsilon (agricultural, food, and biological engineering).
