|Xiong Wen (David) Lou was born in Zhejiang, China, in 1978. He received his B.Eng. (2002) and M.Eng. (2004) in chemical engineering from the National University of Singapore. He received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Cornell University (with Professor Lynden A. Archer) in May 2008. He is currently an Assistant Professor in School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). As a leading author, he has published over 100 journal papers in good journals, such as JACS, Angew.Chem. Int.Ed., Advanced Materials. His papers are highly cited by others with a total ISI citation of over 3400 by July 2012. He received several awards, including the Esso Gold Medal, the Austin Hooey Prize, and the Liu Memorial Awards. He is one winner of TR35@Singapore 2012 by MIT Technology Review. Currently, he is an Associate Editor for Journal of Materials Chemistry (a RSC journal, with a 2011 IF of 5.97).
