Qihua Xiong finished his B.Sc. degree in Physics at Wuhan University in 1997 and M.Sc. degree in physics at Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2000. In 2006, he received his Ph.D. degree in materials science from The Pennsylvania State University under the supervision of Professor Peter Eklund. His Ph.D. research covers from fundamental physical properties especially phonon properties of semiconductor nanowires, to nanomechanical properties and twinning superlattices in nanowires. He joined Professor Charles Lieber laboratory at Harvard as a postdoctoral research fellow in summer of 2006. During his postdoctoral training, he has extended his research to include nanoelectronics and nanoelectronic devices for single molecule biosensing. He won 2nd batch Singapore National Research Foundation Fellowship (NRFF) and joined Nanyang Technological University as a Nanyang Assistant Professor in 2009. His current research is focused on low-dimensional nanomaterials and heterostructures, and their applications in nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, energy and biosensing.
