Zhangjing Chen

Born in Fujian Prov. China, I obtained a Master of Science degree from Northeast  Forestry University, Harbin, China. I came to the United States and earned a Ph.D. in Wood Science and Forest Products from Virginia Tech in 1998.

Currently, I am a research scientist at Virginia Tech and live by the motto “Wood is good and life is better.”
