Yadong Yin attended University of Science and Technology of China in 1992 and received his B.S. in 1996 and M.S. in 1998, both in Chemistry. From 1999 to 2002, he studied as a graduate student at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering under the guidance of Prof. Younan Xia. His Ph.D. research focused on the development of photonic structures using colloidal self-assembly approaches. In 2003, he moved to University of California, Berkeley and worked as a postdoc fellow with Prof. A. Paul Alivisatos. Soon he joined the Molecular Foundry at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, initially as a postdoc fellow and then as a staff scientist. In Berkeley, his research interest was on the chemical transformations of colloidal nanocrystals. Since 2006, he has been an Assistant Professor in Chemistry at the University of California, Riverside. His group focuses on the synthesis, self-assembly, and functionalization of nanostructured materials for various applications.
