With a special interest in space physics, Dr. Albert Chen has served as a NASA Summer Research Fellow at Stennis Space Center, Mississippi, Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, and Dryden Flight Research Center in the engineering research division in Edwards, California. Dr. Chen’s research included Martian dust simulation studies and researching the design of high altitude diffusers for space shuttle main engines. He also has worked on the NASA project CODEM, where he designed and tested prototype hardware and simulation software. At OBU, Dr. Chen teaches all levels of physics courses and a few math courses. In 1989, OBU’s chapter of Mortar Board honored him as Teacher of the Year.
