Bohan Chen DPhil

DPhil Student

COLLEGE: St Anne's College


Bohan obtained his Bachelors degree in Physics and Optoelectronics Engineering in 2017. He built and led a public welfare team based on a project called “Biological Slow Filter” (BSF) cooperating with Tsinghua University from 2014 to 2016. In 2016, he won first place in an “Optoelectronic Scholarship” sponsored by Hanben Niu (Chinese academician). He also conducted research in a new scheme focused on an ultrafast random number generator based on a chaotic laser in 2017. He graduated with a Masters degree in Optics and Photonics from Imperial College London in 2020 and his Master’s research project involved exploring a new method of generating large area optical beams for atom interferometry based on a catadioptric structure.

Bohan joined the Soft Matter Photonics group in October 2020 and is supervised by Dr. Stephen Morris and Prof. Steve Elston. He is also a graduate member at St Anne's College, Oxford.
