Overview

Professor, ARC Future Fellow, Centre Director

Lianzhou Wang is currently Professor and ARC Future Fellow in School of Chemical Engineering and Director of Nanomaterials Centre, the University of Queensland. He received his PhD degree from Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1999. Before joining UQ in 2004, he has worked at two leading national research institutions (NIMS and AIST) of Japan as a research fellow for five years. Since joining UQ, he has worked as ARC QEII Fellow (2006), Senior Lecturer (2007), Associate Professor (2010), and is now Professor (2012-) and ARC Future Fellow in School of Chemical Engineering. He is also the affiliated group leader of Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology.

In the past several years, as a Chief Investigator, he has succeeded in winning a large number of competitive research grants including 18 ARC grants, two CSIRO Flagship Cluster projects, one major Queensland Government fund, one CRC project and a number of UQ grants. Prof. Wang has contributed more than 230 original journal publications (including top ranking journals such as Chem Rev., Chem. Soc. Rev., Angew. Chem., Adv. Mater., J. Am Chem. Soc., etc.), 11 patents and delivered more than 60 plenary/keynote/invited talk at conferences/symposia. He is serving as Associate Editor of Journal of Nanoparticle Research and Science Bulletin. Prof. Wang has won some prestigious Fellowships/awards including STA Fellowship of Japan, ARC Queen Elizabeth II Fellowship of Australia, UQ Research Excellence Award of 2008, Scopus Young Researcher Award of 2011 (for outstanding researchers under 40 yo, Engineering and Technology, Australian Universities), and ARC Future Fellow of 2012, and is an elected Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry.
