Title: New Generation Low-dimensional Nanomaterials for Energy Storage Applications 

Advanced low-dimensional nanomaterials have attracted significant interest due to their extraordinary physical and chemical properties over the past decade. In our research lab, we develop exceptional low-dimensional nanomaterials and explore their applications in effective energy storage devices. One of the greatest challenges besetting the development of battery technologies is fast charging, especially within flexible or compact designs. We discuss how the design of low dimensional nanostructure can correlate with the ion transportation efficiency, the activity of electrochemical reaction and energy storage based on chemical transformation. We have also studied the prospects of fast prototyping and scalability for 3D printed energy storage devices.


Dr. Yang is Associate Professor in Singapore University and Technology and Design. She is an innovator and pioneer of advanced materials science, such as function engineering and chemical doping in low dimensional nanomaterials, for a variety of high-efficient devices and technologies with applications in sustainable energy and environment. She has received a number of prestigious awards including the Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award, IUMRS Young Researcher Award, IPS Nanotechnology Medal, IES Prestigious Engineering Achievement Awards, Tan Kah Kee Young Inventor Award, L’Oreal Singapore for Women in Science National Fellowship, Lee Kuan Yew Fellowship, and Singapore Millennium Foundation Fellowship. Dr Yang has published more than 270 manuscripts in top international journals, including Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, ACS Nano and Nano Letters, with more than 14000 citations and an H-index at 65.
