Prof. Gengfeng Zheng obtained his B.S. degree (2000) at Fudan University in China, and Master (2004) and PhD (2007) degrees in Chemistry at Harvard University in USA, under the guidance of Prof. Charles Lieber. He was a postdoctoral fellow working with Prof. Chad Mirkin at Northwestern University in USA (2007−2009). He became a full professor at Department of Chemistry and Laboratory of Advanced Materials at Fudan University in 2010. He was a recipient of the Shanghai Yu-Cai Award (2016), the Bao-Steel Faculty Award (2015), the Shanghai Shu-Guang Fellow (2015), the Chinese Chemical Society Youth Award (2014), NSFC Excellent Young Scholar Grant (2013), the Shanghai Eastern Scholar Professorship (2012 & 2015), the Chinese Ministry of Education New Century Excellent Talent (2011), the Shanghai Pujiang Fellow (2010), the Northwestern University Outstanding Researcher Award (2009), the American Academy of Nanomedicine Young Investigator Award (2006), the Materials Research Society Graduate Student Gold Award (2006), and Harvard University Distinction in Teaching (2004). His research interests include low-dimensional semiconducting nanomaterial-based synthesis and surface chemistry, biosensing, interfacing with cells, photoelectrochemical conversion, photocatalysis and energy storage.

Prof. Zheng is also a Co-Editor of the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, and an Advisory Board member of the Journal of Materials Chemistry A.
