Overview

Professor Chengzhong (Michael) Yu is an internationally recognised expert in materials science. He is an Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellow; a referee for more than 50 international journals; and a reviewer for the ARC and National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).

International links

Professor Yu has collaborations with scientists in chemistry, material science and chemical engineering from the US, Japan, Scotland, Sweden, France and China. Through these collaborations, more than 30 international journal papers have been published.

Research Impacts

Research

Applied functional nanomaterials. Professor Yu's research focuses on novel nanoporous and nano- materials for biotechnology, clean energy and environment protection. He has research interests in sol-gel chemistry and self-assembly strategies to understand the fundamental structure-property correlations and to design functional nanostructured composites in biomaterials, bio-analysis, proteomics, drug delivery, catalysis, photo-catalysis, and environmental chemistry.

Memberships, patents and funding

Since he joined AIBN in 2010, Professor Yu has attracted four ARC grants and funding from Cancer Council Queensland; and the Queensland Government’s Research Partnership Project, with a total of more than $6.2 million in three years. Before he joined AIBN, he attracted 12 grants from the National Science Foundation of China; the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology; the Chinese Education Ministry; and Shanghai Government. Professor Yu is a referee for more than 50 international journals. He is a reviewer for the ARC and NHMRC; and a grants peer review panel member for the NHMRC in 2012.

Awards and plenaries

Professor Yu is an ARC Future Fellow (2009). He is the recipient of the 2009 Innovation Award of the Chemistry Academy of China; the 2009 Young Scientist Award of the Ceramic Society of China; the 2005 New Century Scientist Award from the Chinese Ministry of Education; and the 2004 Young Scientist Award from the Chemistry Academy of China. Professor Yu received the National Excellent Doctoral Dissertation Award in China (2004); the second prize of the National Science Award of China (2004); and the Shanghai Science & Technology Progress Award (2002). He has been invited to give more than 30 plenary, keynote and invited talks.
