Research Profile

Dr. Shangfeng Yang received his Ph. D. from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2003. He then joined Leibniz-Institute for Solid State and Materials Research (IFW) Dresden, Germany as an Alexander von Humboldt (AvH) Fellow (2004-2005) and a Guest Scientist (2005-2007). In Dec. 2007 he joined University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) as a full professor of Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at Microscale & Department of Materials Science and Engineering, and has been appointed as Department Head since Oct. 2014. His current research interests include the synthesis and characterization of novel nanocarbons (mainly endohedral fullerenes) as well as their applications in organic solar cells. 

Dr. Yang published over 140 peer-reviewed papers in journals including Chem. Rev., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., J. Am. Chem. Soc., which received more than 2100 citations, edited one monograph entitled ‘‘Endohedral Fullerenes: From Fundamentals to Applications’’ (World Scientific Publishing Co.), and contributed to 9 book chapters. He delivered more than 40 invited lectures in international and domestic conferences. He was awarded “Hundreds of Talents Programme” of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2008 and was evaluated as “Excellent” in 2013. He was also a recipient of “Young Faculty Award” of USTC Alumni Foundation (2010) and “the 1st Anhui Provincial Hundreds of Talents” (2011).
