Xiaodong Chen, Ph.D.
Associate Editor , ACS Materials Letters
Professor of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU)
Professor Chen Xiaodong is the President’s Chair Professor in Materials Science and Engineering, Professor of Chemistry (by courtesy) and Professor of Medicine (by courtesy) at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU). He is the Director of Innovative Centre for Flexible Devices (iFLEX) at NTU and the Director of Max Planck – NTU Joint Lab for Artificial Senses. He received his B.S. degree (Honours) in chemistry from Fuzhou University, China, in 1999, M.S. degree (Honours) in physical chemistry from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2002, and PhD degree (Summa Cum Laude) in biochemistry from the University of Münster, Germany, in 2006. After his postdoctoral fellow training at Northwestern University, USA, he joined NTU as a National Research Foundation (NRF) Fellow and Nanyang Assistant Professor (NAP) in 2009 in (MSE). He was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2013, and Full Professor in 2016. Professor Chen’s research focuses on developing soft materials for the applications in flexible devices, energy storage, and healthcare. His research topics cover interactive materials and devices, integrated nano-bio interface, and cyber-human interfaces and systems. So far, he has published over 280 high profiled articles in Nature Nano, Nature Electronics, Nature Chemistry, Nature Communications, Angewandte Chemie, JACS, Advanced Materials, and so on. His research work was highlighted by more than 100 local and overseas’ media. Professor Chen’s research work on generating industrial impact is evident from his more 50 filed/grant patents, nine of which had been licensed for commercial development, and more than 5 projects with industry. He is also the co-founder of a spin-off company, Quickcharge Pte Ltd, commercializing cutting-edge energy storage technology.
Xiaogang Liu, Ph.D.
Singapore University of Technology and Design
Dr. Xiaogang Liu is an Assistant Professor at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). He obtained his Ph.D. degree from the University of Cambridge in 2014. He began his independent research with Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) as a SMART Scholar (2014—2017). After joining SUTD in 2017, he led the Fluorescence Research Group to conduct research on the structure-property relationships of organic dyes, as well as develop high-performance fluorescent products for a wide range of applications. The fluorescence research group aims to contribute to the transformation of dye chemistry from trial-and-error to molecular engineering.
