Shenqiang Ren

Assistant Professor of Chemistry
Primary office:

Dr. Ren studies the field of materials nanochemistry, the dynamic coupling between materials science and chemistry at nanoscale that controls many key chemical and physical properties of both renewable energy and multifunctional materials. Our interdisciplinary group integrates all the aspects of materials research from developing of synthetic strategies to the synthesis and testing of new broadly-defined nanomaterials. We are interested in exploring new nanomaterials and understanding their 'bottom-up' assembly, which may bring breakthroughs in both fundamental nanoscience and lead to revolutionary nanotechnologies toward solar harvesting systems, information technology and biotechnology.
