Dongling Ma has been leading the Advanced Nanomaterials Chemistry and Applications group at Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS), University of Quebec, Quebec City, Canada since 2006. Her research interest consists in the development of various nanoparticles (NPs) and nanocomposites such as quantum dots, transition metal hybrid NPs, plasmonic NPs, and quantum dots decorated carbon nanotubes for a wide variety of applications such as solar cells, catalysis, and biomedicine. Her group has published its work on advanced nanomaterials research in high quality journals (e.g., Advanced Functional Materials, Chemical Communications, Chemistry of Materials, Journal of Materials Chemistry, Chemistry - A European Journal, The Journal of Physical Chemistry C, Langmuir, and Analytical Chemistry). Before joining INRS, she had worked as an NSERC Visiting Fellow at the Steacie Institute for Molecular Sciences, National Research Council of Canada for about two and half years (Feb 2004 – Jun 2006). She received her Ph.D. degree in materials science and engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, USA (Sep 2000 – Jan 2004).
