Prof. Xinliang Feng welcomes Stanford Professor for research stay
Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics welcomes Stanford Professor Hongjie Dai as Humboldt Research Awardee
Prof. Hongjie Dai, J. G. Jackson & C. J. Wood Professor of Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry at Stanford University, has been awarded the prestigious Humboldt Research Award. Hosted by Prof. Xinliang Feng, he will conduct research on Carbon-Based Materials for Electrocatalysis, Batteries, and Nanomedicine at the MPI of Microstructure Physics here in Halle and at the Technical University of Dresden.
Prof. Dai is an internationally renowned authority in the field of materials chemistry, physics, and nanoscience. His pioneering work promoted basic research in the chemistry and physics of quasi-1D carbon nanomaterials. He made a huge contribution towards the development of single-wall carbon nanotubes, graphene nanoribbons, renewable energy storage, and nanomedicine. With about 300 publications and about 120,000 total citations, his H-index is 150 and he is currently ranked 7th in Chemistry by Thomson Reuters.
