EDUCATION AND RESEARCH EXPERIENCE

Dr. Yujie Xiong is a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and PI of the Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at the Microscale. He was born in Jiangxi, China, in 1979. He received a B.S. degree in chemical physics (Special Class for the Gifted Young) in 2000, and a Ph.D. degree in inorganic chemistry under the tutelage of Prof. Yi Xie in 2004, both from the USTC. After four-year training with Professors Younan Xia and John A. Rogers, he served as the Principal Scientist and Lab Manager of National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NSF-NNIN) site at Washington University in St. Louis. In 2011, he joined the USTC faculty through the "Recruitment Program of Global Experts" by the Chinese government and the "Hundred Talent Program" by the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Dr. Xiong has published more than 130 papers in prestigious journals such as Science, J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Chem. Soc. Rev. and Adv. Mater.. His scientific work has been cited more than 10,000 times (H-index 48).

Dr. Xiong has received a number of prestigious awards, including the Outstanding Young Scholar Award by the Biomatik Distinguished Faculty Award by the Chinese-American Chemistry & Chemical Biology Professors Association (2015), the Hong Kong Qiushi Science and Technology Foundation (2014), the Young Cutting-Edge Nanochemistry Research Award by the Chinese Chemical Society and the Small journal (2014), the Young Chemist Award by the Chinese Chemical Society (2013), and the National Natural Science Award (Second Class) by the Chinese government (2012). He is serving on the Editorial Boards of Scientific Reports, Progress in Natural Science: Materials International and Chinese Chemical Letters.
