Dr Yong Wang is a professor at the Center of Electron Microscopy, School of Materials Science and Engineering, Zhejiang University. He received the bachelor degree of engineering from Xiangtan University in 2001 and his PhD of condensed matter physics from Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, supervised by Prof. Ze Zhang. In 2006, he joined Prof. Jin Zou and Prof. Max Lu's groups as a post-doctor at University of Queensland, Australia. From 2008, He worked as an ARC Research Fellow at UQ until 2012 and during 2010-2011, he joined Prof. Kang L. Wang's group at UCLA as a visiting scholar. In early 2012, he started his new position at School of Materials Science and Engineering, Zhejiang University as a full professor.

Since 2004, Dr Wang has published over 120 SCI articles with three in Nature Nanotechnology, one in Nature Materials, and more than 30 in Nano Lett., JACS, ACS Nano, Adv. Mater. and PRL. He also received several prestigious awards, including 2008 Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship, 2010 UQ Foundation Research Excellence Award, 2012 National 1000 Youth Talents of China and 2013 Qiushi Outstanding Young Scholar Award. He is also honorably appeared as one of the cover figures of ARC annual report (2011-2012) and strategic plan (2013-2014) of Australia.

Research work

Dr. Wang has been focused on materials growth, structural characterization of advanced functional materials and fundamental understanding their structure-property links by employing the state-of-the-art transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to explore new routes for improving materials properties. Since 2006, he has been concentrating on spintronics related materials, such as diluted magnetic semiconductors and topological insulators. Currently his research interest focuses on the sub-angstrom investigation of the structures and properties of advanced functional materials (such as catalysts, metal oxides and phase change materials) by in-situ environmental (heating, biasing, gas) TEM and Cs-corrected STEM/TEM.
