Professor Zhang is now focusing on fabrication-microstructure-property-application relationship of electronic materials for piezoelectric sensor, acoustic transducer, and energy storage/harvesting applications. He is a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society (2019), a Future Fellow of the Australian Research Council (2015-2019), AdCom member of IEEE-UFFC (2016-2018). He has published over 554 peer-reviewed papers with an h-index of 74 and over 24,217 citations.
The University of Sydney, Australia
Professor Lianzhou Wang, an Associate Editor of Microstructures. He is a Chinese Australian materials scientist and Professor in the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Queensland. He is the director of the Nanomaterials Centre (Nanomac) and a senior group member at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology at the University of Queensland, as well as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Professor Wang is recognized internationally for the design and development of semiconductor nanomaterials for use in cleaner and more efficient solar energy conversion and storage systems, including new photocatalytsts for solar-driven hydrogen, valuable chemical production, low-cost solar cells, and integrated energy storage systems. He has published over 523 journal papers in nanomaterial and nanotechnology fields with an h-index of 93 and over 30,661 citations.
University of Southern Queensland, Australia
Professor Zhigang Chen, a Senior Editorial Board Member of Microstructures. He is a Distinguished Professor in Energy Materials at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), one of the youngest Professors in the Australian engineering field when he was promoted to be a professor at the age of 38 years old in 2018. His expertise is in functional materials for thermoelectrics and nanoelectronics, and advanced microscopy. Professor Chen is one of the Clarivate Highly Cited Researcher (Top 0.1% researcher in the world). He has authored over 280 high-impact journal publications. These publications have been cited over 18,828 times with an h-index of 70. In the last three years, Professor Chen has delivered over 40 plenary/keynote/invited talks in international/national conferences.
City University of Hong Kong, China
Professor Yunhau Ng, a Senior Editorial Board Member of Microstructures. He is an Associate Professor in the School of Energy and Environment, City University of Hong Kong. He focuses on the development of novel photoactive semiconductors (particles and thin films) for sunlight energy-to-chemicals conversion and storage, including hydrogen generation from water and conversion of carbon dioxide to solar fuels. In 2019, Professor Ng was awarded APEC Science Prize for Innovation, Research and Education (ASPIRE) in Chile for his work in artificial photosynthesis. He was previously named the Honda-Fujishima Prize winner in 2013 as the first non-Japanese recipient, in recognition of his work in the area of photo-driven water splitting. He has published over 170 peer-reviewed research articles, with over 15,159 citations and an h-index of 51.
