Research Profile

Deng Zhaoxiang received his Bachelor’s degree in 1995, Ph.D. in 2000, both from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), which defines him as a chemist. During his Ph.D. study, his research was concentrated on nanosecond-resolved voltammetry and computer simulation of electrochemical problems. After completing all his degrees, he had two years’ postdoctoral experience on nanostructured inorganic phases at Tsinghua University (Beijing, China). From October 2002, he was a postdoctoral research associate at Purdue University with his research interest shifted to DNA nanotechnology including DNA assisted nanofabrication and DNA directed self-assembly. In June 2005, he joined the Department of Chemistry at USTC as a Bairen (Hundred Talents Program of USTC) professor. Deng Zhaoxiang has authored or coauthored over 70 research papers on peer-reviewed journals spanning the areas of DNA nanotechnology, inorganic nanostructures and electrochemistry.
