RSC Desktop Seminar - Hosted by Materials Horizons and Nanoscale Horizons

25 November 2020, Online, United Kingdom

The meeting will take place at 07:00-08:45 GMT/15:00-16:45 CST/16:00-17:45 JST

RSC Desktop Seminars are an ongoing initiative from the Royal Society of Chemistry to bring cutting-edge research directly to you! Now, more than ever, there is a crucial need for sharing research, and each seminar in this series will feature presentations from Editorial and Community Board members of Materials Horizons and Nanoscale Horizons.

In this installment, join Nanoscale Horizons Scientific Editor, Professor Jinlan Wang (Southeast University, China) and Materials Horizons Community Board member, Dr Mengye Wang (Sun Yat-Sen University, China) to hear about their latest work.

This 90-minute seminar will allow researchers of all professional levels to connect and share ideas and ask questions.

Professor Jinlan Wang, Southeast University, China

Jinlan Wang got her Ph. D from Department of Physics, Nanjing University, China in 2002. Then, she had three-year Postdoctoral experience at Chemistry Division, Argonne National Laboratory, USA. Since 2006, she has joined in Southeast University in China as a full professor and developed the computational physics and chemistry group. She currently is a distinguished professor of Southeast University. Her current research interest mainly focuses on computational studies and design of two-dimensional materials and clean energy materials. The techniques involves from machine learning to classical molecular dynamics to different level first-principles methods. She published over 200 papers in high-impact journals, including Science, Nat. Commun, JACS, Angew Chem, Adv. Mater., with the total citations over 7000 times and H-index of 44. She was also the recipient of the Distinguished Young Scholars award of National Science Foundation of China (2015).

Dr Mengye Wang, Sun Yat-Sen University, China

Mengye Wang received both her Bachelor’s degree and PhD from Xiamen University under the supervision of Professor Changjian Lin. She was also a visiting PhD student at the Georgia Institute of Technology working under the supervision of Professor Zhiqun Lin, completing her PhD in early 2015, followed by a Postdoc at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Since July 2018 Mengye is an Associate Professor at the School of Materials at Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, China. Her research focusses on the growth of large size semiconductor single crystal, advanced materials for photocatalysis and catalytic mechanism.
