Hui-Shen Shen was graduated from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 1970 and received a Ph.D. degree in structural mechanics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1986. He became a Full Professor of applied mechanics at Shanghai Jiao Tong University at the end of 1992. From 1995 to 2008, he was invited as a Visiting Professor time after time at the University of Cardiff, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the City University of Hong Kong, the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, the Shizuoka University in Japan, the University of Western Sydney in Australia, and the York University in Canada. His research interests include elastic stability theory and, in general, nonlinear response of plate and shell structures. He has published over 220 Journal papers, of which 159 are international journal papers. His research publications have been widely cited in the areas of mechanics of materials and structures (more than 2800 times by papers published in 154 international archival journals, 152 local journals, and other publications, excluding self-citations). Referring to the Web of Science, his h-index was 24 (as of April 2011). He is the coauthor of the book entitled Buckling of Structures (with T-Y Chen) and is the author of two books entitled Postbuckling Behavior of Plates and Shells, and Functionally Graded Materials: Nonlinear Analysis of Plates and Shells (CRC Press). Currently, he serves on the Editorial Boards of the journal Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, the International Journal of Structural Stability and Dynamics, and the Journal of Strain Analysis for Engineering Design. He has been invited to be the peer reviewer for over 50 international journals, including the premier journals: International Journal of Solids and Structures, Journal of Applied Mechanics ASME, Applied Mechanics Reviews, Composite Science and Technology, and Nanotechnology.
