Zhu Jia
 

Dr. Jia Zhu is a Professor at College of Engineering and Applied Science, Nanjing University. His scientific research interest is in the area of nanomaterials, nanophotonics and nanoscale heat transfer.

Dr. Zhu was born in Xuzhou of Jiangsu, China, in 1982. He studied Physics at Nanjing University, received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow at University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.  Even though he got several faculty positions from prestigious universities in the U.S., in Sept 2013 he decided to return back to Nanjing University, to be a Professor at College of Engineering and Applied Science.   

He has received several prestigious awards including: OSA Young Investigator Award (2017), Dupont Young Professor Award (2016), MIT Tech Review TR35 award (2016), The Recruitment Program of Global Experts (2014), Division of Inorganic Chemistry Yong Investigator Award (American Chemical Society, 2011), Gold Medal of Graduate Student Award (Material Research Society, 2010), Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Students Abroad (2009).  He has published over 40 papers in prestigious journals (Nature Nanotech., Nature Photonics, Nature Materials, Science Advances, PNAS, Nano Lett., Advanced Materials, etc.). He has delivered over 40 keynote/invited lectures at leading research institutions, international conferences, and U.S. Department of Energy. He is a reviewer of over 30 scientific journals. He is on the advisory board of Molecular Systems Design & Engineering (Royal Society of Chemistry).
