Shi-Gang Sun obtained his B.S. degree from Xiamen University, China, in 1982. He then moved to Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI), France, to pursue his postgraduate studies. He obtained his Diploma d’Etudes Approfondies under the supervision of Professor Roger Parsons, and Doctorat d’Etat (Docteur ès Sciences Physiques) under the direction of Professor Jean Clavilier at the same university in 1986. After one year of postdoctoral research at Laboratoire d'Electrochimie Interfaciale du CNRS, France, he returned to China by the end of 1987, and served as an Associate Professor and late as a Full Professor of chemistry (1991) at Xiamen University till now. Dr. Sun’s research interests include electrocatalysis, electrochemical surface sciences, spectroelectrochemistry, nanomaterials, and chemical power sources. He has published over 280 refereed papers, among which about 180 appeared in international journals, including Science, Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Journal of Physical Chemistry, Chemical Communications, and Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry. He is the coauthor of a book entitled In-Situ Spectroscopic Studies of Adsorption at the Electrode and Electrocatalysis, and has contributed by invitation with 8 chapters to 8 scientific books. Dr. Sun is active in both the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) and the Chinese Electrochemical Society (CES). Sun has been elected as a President Elect of CES in 2007, ISE Fellow in 2007, and Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry in 2005. He is now an Editorial Board Member of Physical Chemistry (Chinese) and Electrochemistry (Chinese), an Associate Editor of Spectral Analysis and Spectroscopy (Chinese), and an Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry and Functional Materials Letter.
