10月18日，国际纳米领域专家，新加坡南洋理工大学娄雄文教授应邀来我课题组访问，并为全院广大师生做了题为“Synthesis of Hollow Nanostructures for Electrochemical Energy Storage”的主题报告。
Dr. David Lou received his B.Eng. (1st class honors) (2002) and M.Eng. (2004) degrees from the National University of Singapore. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering from Cornell University in 2008. Right after graduation, he joined Nanyang Technological University (NTU) as an Assistant Professor. He was promoted to Associate Professor since September 2013, and to Full Professor since September 2015. He has published about 240 papers with a total ISI citation of >29,800, and an h-index of 101. His main research interest is on designed synthesis of nanostructured materials for energy and environmental applications. In particular, he has strong interest on synthesis of hollow nanostructures for different applications, such as, lithium-ion batteries and supercapacitors. He also explores the applications of novel nanostructured materials for electrocatalysis and photocatalysis. He has received several important awards including the Young Scientist Award 2012 by National Academy of Science of Singapore. He also received the Nanyang Research Award 2012 by Nanyang Technological University. He was listed as a Highly Cited Researcher by Thomson Reuters in 2014 (in Materials Science) and 2015 (in both Materials Science & Chemistry) and 2016 (in Materials Science, Chemistry, & Environment). He is currently an Associate Editor for Journal of Materials Chemistry A.
