Da Hsuan Feng, Ph.D.
Vice President for Research and Economic Development
Born in New Delhi, India, Dr. Feng moved to Singapore as a young boy. After completing his elementary, secondary education and two years in civil engineering from Singapore Polytechnic, Dr. Feng received his Bachelor and Doctorate degrees from Drew University and the University of Minnesota respectively.
Prior to joining the Physics Department of Drexel University in 1976, where he eventually became the M. Russell Wehr Professor of Physics, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Manchester and the University of Texas at Austin.
During his tenure at Drexel University, he served for two years as Program Director of Theoretical Physics at the National Science Foundation and Visiting Professor of the Niels Bohr Institute.
Feng is an expert in mathematical physics, nuclear and nuclear astrophysics, quantum electronics, fundamental issues of quantum mechanics, network architecture and computational physics. He has been a consultant to the theoretical physics groups of Los Alamos National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory and United Kingdom’s Daresbury Laboratory. He also is an honorary/guest professor of six distinguished Chinese universities and Academia Sinica. In 1996, Feng was elected Fellow of the American Physical Society “for outstanding contributions to the understanding of nuclear structure physics, particularly for the applications of the coherent states to physics and nuclear physics.”
In 1997-1998, Feng served as technical advisor to Congressman Curt Weldon, currently Vice Chair of the House Armed Services, regarding South Africa, Central Europe, (especially Hungary) and China. He accompanied two Congressional Delegatio
