Dr. Zhiqun Lin is a Professor at the School 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. He was a postdoctoral associate at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Iowa State University in 2004 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2010. He moved to Georgia Institute of Technology in 2011, and became a Professor in 2014. His research interests include polymer-based nanocomposites, block copolymers, polymer blends, conjugated polymers, quantum dots (rods, tetrapods and wires), functional nanocrystals (metallic, magnetic, semiconducting, ferroelectric, multiferroic, upconversion and thermoelectric) of different architectures (plain, core/shell, hollow and Janus), solar cells (perovskite solar cells, organic-inorganic hybrid solar cells and dye sensitized solar cells), hierarchically structured and assembled materials, and surface and interfacial properties. He has published more than 150 peer reviewed journal articles (with an h-index of 46), 6 book chapters, and 2 books. Currently, he serves as an Associate Editor for Journal of Materials Chemistry A, and an editorial advisory board member for Nanoscale.
