Jun Ren


Associate Professor at Delaware State University

Dr. Jun Ren is an associate Professor of Engineering Science at the Division of Physics, Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science at Delaware State University. She received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. She joined Delaware State University as a faculty in 2015. Her expertise is in the field of laser matter interactions, with plasma, such as, laser produced plasma emission spectroscopy, plasma as a medium for coherent light emission, plasma interaction with the extreme light, and new material properties by light excitations under the plasma mediation. Her recent research expansions include computer infrastructure developments to support plasma, spectroscopy and molecular dynamics simulations, and new computing paradigms in quantum computing. She has been involved in various commitments and activities for underrepresented minority students in STEM fields, including serving as a faculty advisor for Delaware State University student chapter of National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) during 2017 -2020. In her roles, she supervised student intern opportunities, student travels funding opportunities and career development and connections with tech companies. She serves on the DOE LaserNetUS as a student experience and on the outreach committee.
