Dr. Zhiqun Lin

Dr. Zhiqun Lin is an Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He received his BS degree in Chemistry from Xiamen University in 1995, MS degree in Macromolecular Science from Fudan University in 1998, and PhD degree in Polymer Science and Engineering from University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 2002. From November 2002–July 2004 he was a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Iowa State University as an Assistant Professor in 2004, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2010. He moved to Georgia Institute of Technology in 2011. His research focuses on solar energy conversion and nanostructured functional materials for sustainable energy, polymer-based nanocomposites, semiconductor organic-inorganic nanohybrids, block copolymers, polymer blends, conjugated polymers, quantum dots (rods, tetrapods, wires), magnetic nanocrystals, metallic nanocrystals, semiconductor metal oxide nanocrystals, ferroelectric nanocrystals, multiferroic nanocrystals, upconversion nanocrystals, thermoelectric nancrystals, core/shell nanocrystals, hollow nanocrystals, Janus nanocrystals, nanopores, nanotubes, hierarchically structured and assembled materials, and surface and interfacial properties. He has published 117 peer reviewed journal articles. Currently, he serves as an Associate Editor for Journal of Materials Chemistry A, and an advisory board member for Nanoscale. He is also an Associate editor for the Journal of Materials Chemistry A and The Royal Society of Chemistry. He is a recipient of Frank J. Padden Jr. Award in Polymer Physics from APS, an NSF Career Award, a 3 M Non-Tenured Faculty Award, and an invited participant at the National Academy of Engineering’s (NAE) 2010 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium (US FOE). His office is located at MoSE 3100K. He can be reached at 404.385.4404 or by e-mail at zhiqun.lin@mse.gatech.edu or see his faculty page or group web site.
