VP (USA & China)
Dr. Chen Peng is the Vice President of Business Development for North America, China and Korea since he joined Mestrelab Research S.L. in May 2008. He was born in China in 1967, and got his B.Sc. in Organometallic Chemistry from Wuhan University in 1987. He obtained his PhD from the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry with a thesis work on computer-assisted structure elucidation for organic compounds and natural products using 1D and 2D NMR data. Between 2004 to 2006, he did post-doctoral research work on selective excitation NMR spectroscopy in Prof Geoffrey Bodenhausen’s group in the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (Tallahassee, FL) in 1994-1996. Between 1996 to 1998, he worked as the main developer of NMR-SAMS, the first commercial software product for structure elucidation, in Spectrum Research, based on his PhD work. From 1998 to 2005, he worked as a senior software product developer for Felix in Molecular Simulation Inc (Accelrys). From 2005 to 2008, he worked as a senior software developer and product manager for NMR related tools in the KnowItAll software package of Bio-Rad Informatics. Since his tenure in Mestrelab, Chen enjoys traveling between states/countries to present Mnova to universities and companies onsite or at tradeshows. He also brings back feedback and custom development projects to the Development Group. Occasionally he jumps on writing Mnova scripts for customers with special needs, and actually a few of those scripts were further developed to Mnova plugins such as qNMR and Screen.
