Intrinsic Low Thermal Conductivity and Enhanced Thermoelectric Performance in Low Dimensional Structured Materials

Biography

Dr. Zhou is currently the chair of the Analytical and Test Center of Chongqing University and a professor at the department of Applied Physics. She gained her Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2008. After her Ph.D, she joined the University of Washington as a Postdoctoral Fellow under the supervision of Professor Guozhong Cao, where she worked on nanostructured material for energy conversion and storage application as dye sensitized solar cell and lithium ion battery. In 2010, she moved to University of Michigan as a Postdoctoral Fellow under the supervision of Professor Ctirad Uher. Her research has been concentrating on manufacturing high-performance smart functional materials for thermoelectric application, and on understanding their underlying physics and chemistry for better designing the manufacturing. As a Chief Investigator, Dr. Zhou has succeeded in winning many competitive research grants including 4 NSFC grants, and 2 CQU grants. Dr. Zhou has contributed more than 80 original journal publications, 5 patents and over 20 invited talks or oral presentations.
