EDUCATION AND RESEARCH EXPERIENCE
Dr. Jie Zeng 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 has been selected to the “Recruitment Program of Global Experts” by the Chinese government and the “Hundred Talent Program” by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2012.
   
Dr. Zeng was born in Shangcheng of Henan, China, in 1980. He studied applied chemistry at the USTC (B.S., 2002) and received a Ph.D. in condensed matter physics under the tutelage of Prof. J. G. Hou and Prof. Xiaoping Wang (2007). He worked with Prof. Younan Xia as a postdoctoral fellow at Washington University in St. Louis from 2008 to 2011 and was promoted to Research Assistant Professor in 2011. In 2012, he relocated to USTC to take the position of Professor for Chemistry in Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at the Microscale. His scientific work has been published as 78 papers in prestigious journals (Nature Nanotech., Nature Commun., Chem. Rev., Nano Today, J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Nano Lett., Adv. Mater., etc.), 2 invited book chapters, and 17 patents. As of December 2015, his scientific works have been cited more than 4,100 times (H-index = 31).
