South China University of Technology, China

Talk: Modulating surface oxygen redox process in transition metal oxides/(oxy)hydroxide for promoted electro-catalytic activity

Yan Chen is a professor at the School of Environment and Energy at the South China University of Technology. She received her B.S. and M.S. from Peking University (China), and Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA).

Prior to her current position, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at MIT. Her research focuses on rational design of new materials to enable high performance, economical energy and environment devices based on understanding and controlling the surface and interface properties under extreme conditions (electric polarization, reactive environment, radiation etc.). She is also working on the application of ion beam implantation in low dimensional materials for energy and electronics.
