Career Highlights


Shu-Hong YU studied chemistry in the Hefei University of Technology and received BS in 1988. He got MS from Shanghai Research Institute of Chemical Industry (SRICI) in 1991. He completed PhD (Inorganic Chemistry) in 1998 from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). From 1999 to 2001, he worked in Materials and Structures Laboratory, Tokyo Institute of Technology (TIT), as a JSPS (the Japan Society for Promotion of Science) Research Fellow, working with Prof. Masahiro Yoshimura. He was awarded an AvH (Alexander von Humboldt Foundation) Fellowship (2001-2002) in Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Germany, working with Professor Markus Antonietti and Dr. Helmut C?lfen. He joined Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at Microscale (HFNL) and became a faculty member in School of Chemistry & Materials as a full professor in 2002. Currently, he is leading the Division of Nanomaterials & Chemistry, HFNL, and also acting as the Deputy Dean of the School of Chemistry & Materials, University of Science and Technology of China. He has authored and co-authored more than 80 refereed journal publications, 5 invited book chapters, and one patent.
