为了加强天津理工大学新能源材料与低碳技术研究院的国际交流与合作，2018年6月22日，应鲁统部教授的邀请，加州大学洛杉矶分校段镶锋、黄昱教授访问我院，并分别为师生们作了题为“Van der Waals Integration beyond 2D Materials”和“Heterogeneous NanoCatalytic Surfaces”的学术报告。来自新能源材料与低碳技术研究院、材料科学与工程学院及相关学院的师生参加了此次报告会。
Dr. Duan received his B.S. Degree from University of Science and Technology of China in 1997, and Ph.D. degree from Harvard University in 2002. He was a Founding Scientist and then Manager of Advanced Technology at Nanosys Inc., a nanotechnology startup founded based partly on his doctoral research. Dr. Duan joined UCLA with a Howard Reiss Career Development Chair in 2008, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2012 and Full Professor in 2013. Dr. Duan’s research interest includes nanoscale materials, devices and their applications in future electronic, energy and health technologies. Dr. Duan has published over 200 papers with over 40,000 citations, and holds over 40 issued US patents. For his pioneer research in nanoscale science and technology, Dr. Duan has received many awards, including MIT Technology Review Top-100 Innovator Award, NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, NSF Career Award, Alpha Chi Sigma Glen T. Seaborg Award, Herbert Newby McCoy Research Award, US Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), ONR Young Investigator Award, DOE Early Career Scientist Award, Human Frontier Science Program Young Investigator Award, Dupont Young Professor, Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship, International Union of Materials Research Society and Singapore Materials Research Society Young Researcher Award, the Beilby Medal and Prize, the Nano Korea Award, and most recently International Society of Electrochemistry Zhao-Wu Tian Prize for Energy Electrochemistry.
Dr. Yu Huang received her B.S. in Chemistry from University of Science and Technology of China, and her Ph.D in physical chemistry and M.A in Chemistry from Harvard University. Before she embarked on her independent career at UCLA She was awarded the prestigious Lawrence Fellowship and held a joint postdoctoral position with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and MIT.
At UCLA Prof. Huang’s research focuses on mechanistic understanding of nanoscale phenomena and on exploiting the unique properties of nanoscale materials for various applications. Taking advantage of the unique roles of nanoscale surfaces and interfaces, she is creating methodologies to apply the latest developments in nanoscale materials and nanotechnology for probing nanoscale processes that can fundamentally impact a wide range of technologies including materials synthesis, catalysis, fuel cells, and devices applications.
Prof. Huang’s achievements have gained her international and national recognitions including the International Precious Metal Institute (IPMI) Carol Tyler Award, the Materials Research Society (MRS) Fellow, the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Fellow, the Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering (PECASE), the National Institute of Health (NIH) Director’s New Innovator Award, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award, the World’s Top 100 Young Innovators award, the Sloan Fellowship, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) Young Chemist Award, and the Nano 50 Award.
