Guihua Yu, associate professor of mechanical engineering and materials science in the Cockrell School of Engineering, has been selected to receive the prestigious 2018 Nano Letters Young Investigator Lectureship Award. Nano Letters and the ACS Division of Colloid & Surface Chemistry are co-sponsoring this annual award.

The award honors the contributions of rising young investigators who have made major impacts on the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Yu was recognized for making “significant contributions to rational synthesis and fundamental investigation of low-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures and functional polymer nanostructures with tunable chemical structures/interfaces and unique physical properties for advanced energy and environmental technologies. Some of his most notable research published in Nano Letters to date has focused on how polymer nanoscience fundamentally impacts several key technologies in electronics and energy.” Yu will be presenting his research at a symposium and award ceremony during the 2018 Fall ACS National Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. 

Since joining The University of Texas at Austin faculty in 2012, Yu has established a world-class research program in materials science and nanoscience. His research group has published numerous high-impact papers in various prestigious journals. Yu joins a list of outstanding prior winners including Silvija Gradečak (MIT), Julia Greer (Caltech), Ali Javey (Berkeley), Jennifer Dionne (Stanford), Liangbing Hu (Maryland).
