Professor Junling WANG obtained his B.S. degree from Nanjing University, China in 1999, and Ph.D. degree from University of Maryland, College Park in 2005. After a short postdoc training at PennState University, he joined Nanyang Technological University, Singapore as an Assistant Professor in 2006. He was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2011 and Full Professor in 2017. In 2020, he joined Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), China as a Chair Professor.
Professor Wang’s research activities focus on multiferroic materials. In particular, he is interested in 3D perovskites with the chemical formula of ABX3.These materials possess a wide range of exotic properties from highly insulating to superconducting, from dielectric to ferroelectric and multiferroic. His pioneering work on multiferroic BiFeO3 thin films has attracted much attention in the field. His recent work also includes 2D layered materials that possess ferroelectric and/or magnetic properties. He has published over 150 papers in high impact journals, including Science, Science Advances, Nature Materials and Nature Communications. His work has been cited more than 17000 times with an H-index of 52 (google scholar).
Through materials processing, structural and electrical/magnetic characterizations, he strives to understand the fundamental physics of multiferroic materials at low dimensions and develop new materials/devices for the next generation nanotechnology.
