Author information

Dr Zhang joined Peking University as a full professor in 2010. He received his B. Sci and PhD in physics from Tsinghua University in 1998 and 2002, respectively. From 2002 to 2004 he was a SMF research fellow at National University of Singapore (NUS) and from 2005 to 2006 at Stanford University. He joined the Institute of Microelectronics, A*STAR, Singapore, as a senior research engineer in 2006 and Department of Electronics, Peking University in 2010 as a full professor. His research is focused on the energy transfer and harvesting in nanostructured materials. He is a world recognized expert in the electrical and thermal properties simulation of nano materials. He developed several novel approaches for molecular dynamic, and quantum chemistry simulations. He has authored or co-authored more than 70 publications in the peer-reviewed international journals and conferences, including 5 in Nano letters and Nano Today, and 1 invited review article in NanoScale. He has delivered several invited talks in the international conferences. His research has gained him a number of international recognition and media highlight. He was awarded with an Outstanding PhD thesis Award in Tsinghua University (2002), Singapore Millennium Foundation Fellowship (2002-2004), and IME Excellence Award (2008).
