Chemical Engineering assistant professor, Hongliang Xin, was honored as a Faculty Fellow at the College of Engineering annual Dean's Awards Reception held at Virginia Tech on May 9, 2019. The award recognizes extraordinary performance in research.
Xin's research focuses on modeling structure-function relationships of nanoscale assemblies for energy and electronics applications. Ongoing research includes design of hybrid materials for catalysis, solar energy capture and storage, charge transport, etc. Motivated by recent advances in ultrafast science, Xin's lab specifically tackles challenging problems in energy and electronics that require fundamental understanding of atomistic and charge dynamiX at interfaces.
