Yu Huang joins MCF as Associate Editor

By .

Materials Chemistry Frontiers is delighted to welcome Professor Yu Huang (University of California, Los Angeles) as Associate Editor for the journal.



Yu Huang is Professor in the Department of Materials Sciences and Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), USA. She received her Ph.D and M.A degrees in physical chemistry from Harvard University and B.S. degree from University of Science and Technology of China. Following her Ph.D, she received the Lawrence Postdoctoral Fellowship and conducted her postdoctoral research at MIT and Lawrence Livermore National Labs concurrently. She received several awards including the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers in 2008, NASA Nanotech Brief Nano 50 Innovator award in 2006 and MIT Technology Review World’s Top 100 Young Innovator Award in 2003.


Research Highlights

Her research focuses on mechanistic understanding of nanoscale phenomena and on exploiting the unique properties of nanoscale materials for various applications. Taking advantage of the unique roles of nanoscale surfaces and interfaces, Professor Huang is creating methodologies to apply the latest developments in nanoscale materials and nanotechnology for probing nanoscale processes that can fundamentally impact a wide range of technologies including materials synthesis, catalysis, fuel cells, and devices applications.
