His research interests are inter-disciplinary, specializing in organic/hybrid functional materials and devices for photonics, energy, sensors, and nanomedicine. He was named by Thomson Reuters as one of the “Highly Cited Researchers” in the past several years and as one of the "World's Most Influential Scientific Minds" in 2015 and 2016 in the area of materials science.
Being an internationally recognized scholar, Professor Jen has been elected as Fellow by several professional societies including AAAS, MRS, ACS, PMSE, OSA, SPIE, and as an Academician by the Washington State Academy of Sciences. He has also demonstrated capability on technology transfer and fund raising, and is the founder of the Institute of Advanced Materials for Energy (i-AME) of the University of Washington.
Prof. Kenji OGINO
Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, Japan
Dr. Kenji Ogino is a full professor of Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology. His research has concentrated on synthesis of semiconducting polymers and applications to photorefractive, electroluminescent, and photovoltaic devices. Especially he is interested in block copolymers, which can form microphase separated nanostructures in thin films.
Dr. Ogino received his B.S. degree from Department of Reaction Chemistry, the University of Tokyo in 1986. His Ph.D. degree was given from the University of Tokyo in 1995. He started his carrier at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology as a research associate in 1986, and was appointed to current position in 2005. In 1997, he spent one year at C. K. Ober research group in Cornell University as a visiting scientist. He is also a vice-president of the Society of Fiber Science and Technology, Japan.
Prof. Yong Suk Yang
Pusan National University, KOREA
Yong Suk Yang is a Professor Emeritus in the Nanoenergy Engineering Department and former Dean of the College of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology, and former Director of the Research Center for Dielectric and Advanced Matter Physics at Pusan National University. He received his BS in physics in 1977 from Sogang University, Seoul, and PhD in solid state physics in 1990 from McGill University, Montreal. He is a faculty member since 1993. He has been carrying out experiments at neutron- and synchrotron radiation- related international facilities, NSLS, APS, SSRL, Oak Ridge (USA), AECL (Canada), SPring8 (Japan), Riso (Denmark), KAERI (Korea). He has published various articles on the phase transitions of structural order-disorder, spin dynamics on low dimensional magnet, glass-crystallization through nucleation and growth, negative thermal expansion. Multiferroics, dielectric relaxation, solid oxide fuel cell, lithium ion battery are also his recent interests. Not only research but he also emphases the importance of education and training. He has taught under and graduate students over 30 different subjects, quantum mechanics, statistics, solid state physics, thin films, electronic properties of materials, thermoelectric, semiconductor, thermal physics, ceramics, dielectrics, modern physics…, during the last 20 years.
