|Dr. Hua Zhang is currently an assistant professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering since July 2006. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Chemistry from Nanjing University in China in 1992 and 1995, respectively, and his Ph.D. in Nano-Chemistry from Peking University in China in July 1998. He joined Prof. Frans C. De Schryver’s group at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KULeuven) in Belgium as a Research Associate in January 1999. Then he moved to Prof. Chad A. Mirkin’s group at Northwestern University as a Postdoctoral Fellow in July 2001. He started to work at NanoInk Inc. (USA) as a Research Scientist/Chemist in August 2003. After that, he worked as a Senior Research Scientist at Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology in Singapore from November 2005 to July 2006. He has published 2 book chapters, 40+ papers and 20+ patent applications. His H-index is 15. He is an Associate Editor of International Journal of Nanoscience (2007-) and sits on the Editorial Board of NANO (2007-). He has been invited as a reviewer for a number of premier journals, including Nano Letters, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Chemistry of Materials, Journal of Physical Chemistry, Langmuir, Biomacromolecules, Nanotechnolgy, etc. He has been a Session Chair and in the Organizing Committee for some international conferences. He is a member of American Chemical Society (ACS), American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Materials Research Society (MRS) and Materials Research Society of Singapore (MRS-S).|
