Prof. Dr. Yu Fang, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences

Fang received his BSc in Chemistry from the Department of Chemistry, Shaanxi Normal University in 1982, his MSc from the Department of Chemistry, Central China Normal University in 1987, and his PhD from the Polymer Center, Lancaster University, UK in 1998, working under the guidance of Professor Ian Soutar. From 1982 to 1993, Fang was an Assistant Lecturer, then Lecturer, and then an Associate Professor of the Shaanxi Normal University. From July, 1993 to March, 1995, Fang was a visiting scholar at the School of Chemistry, Birmingham University, UK, under the supervision of Professor John F. Kennedy. In September, 1998, Fang rejoined the Chemistry Faculty at Shaanxi Normal University. In 2021, Fang was elected as an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. His current research interests include mainly: (1) Development of film-based fluorescent sensors through innovative design of sensing fluorophores and modulation of their excited-state processes; (2) Development of molecular materials of diversified structures with emphases in physical chemistry at the surfaces, interfaces and adlayers.

Keynote Topic: Adlayer Structure Innovation and Film-BASED Fluorescent Sensors
