Research includes scanning tunneling microscopy and ultrafast photoemission spectroscopy.
Jin Zhao received her B.S. in Physics as well as her Ph.D., also in Physics, from the University of Science & Technology of China. She then joined the University of Pittsburgh as a postdoctoral research associate and stayed in the Department of Physics and Astronomy as a research assistant professor. Since 2010, she is a professor in the Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at Microscope in the Department of Physics of her alma mater, the University of Science & Technology of China, while retaining an adjunct professorship at the University of Pittsburgh.
Susan Fullerton received both her B.S. and her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, at Penn State University. She then joined Notre Dame University as a Research Assistant Professor, where she still holds a courtesy appointment in the Electrical Engineering Department. She moved to the University of Pittsburgh in 2015 to carry on her work on polymer electrolytes. She has won more than a dozen awards throughout her career and holds a patent for single transistor random access memory using ion storage in two-dimensional crystals. Susan, her husband, and their daughter are happy to be back home in Pittsburgh with their families.
Dr. Xu Zhang will join the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) as a tenure-track assistant professor in September 2019. He received his PhD and Master’s degrees in electrical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a bachelor’s degree in physics from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). Dr. Zhang is currently an Enrico Fermi Fellow at the Argonne National Laboratory. He worked as a postdoctoral associate at Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL) at MIT from 2017 to 2018.
