Invited speaker- Prof. Dr. Jing Zhou


University of Wyoming, Laramie (WY), United States of America

Jing Zhou is a Professor of Chemistry at University of Wyoming (UW). She received her B.S. in Chemistry from Xiamen University in 1997 and her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from University of South Carolina in 2004. She then did her postdoctoral work at Oak Ridge National Laboratory prior to joining the faculty at UW in August 2007. She was a visiting scientist in the Chemistry Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory in spring 2015. She was the recipient of the US National Science Foundation Career Award in 2012. Her research interest focuses on the fundamental understanding of structure-reactivity relationships of catalytic materials for energy and environmental applications. In particular, her research group studies the growth and characterization of well-defined ceria thin films, metal-doped ceria, and ceria-supported metal particles under ultrahigh vacuum conditions using combined spectroscopy and microscopy techniques.
