Level-2 professor at the School of Materials Science and Engineering, Huazhong University of Science and Technology(HUST)
He is a participant in the state-level talent program, a member of the Committee on Solid State Ionics, an editorial board member of the international journal Solid State Ionics, and a judge of the academic award of the International Society for Solid State Ionics. Before returning to China, he was a lifelong senior research fellow of the Research Center Juelich in Germany, and had been doing research work at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research for many years. He received the Ross Coffin Purdy Award of the American Ceramic Society in 2005, and has delivered over 80 invited reports at domestic and overseas mainstream academic conferences (e.g., MRS, E-MRS, ECS, MS&T, SSI), and domestic and overseas famous universities and research institutes (e.g., the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, the Max Planck Institute, Tsinghua University, Peking University, the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences), and published over 150 papers on academic journals such as Science, Advanced Materials and Advanced Functional Materials. After returning to China in 2012, he established the Laboratory of Solid State Ionics. His research can be summarized as “applications of SSI and mixed conductors in such fields as information, energy and environment”, including brain-like chips and AI, solid state electrolytes and batteries, and gas sensors and artificial olfaction.
