Invited Speaker

Prof. Jiangfeng Ni
Soochow University, China

Topic: "Three-dimensional Nanoarchitectured Electrodes for Sodium Microbatteries"

Dr. Jiangfeng Ni is a professor of Physics at Soochow University. He received his PhD (Chemistry) in 2008 from Peking University, then worked at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan, and moved to National University of Singapore in 2010. In early 2011, he joined Soochow University and was later promoted to the range of full professor. At present Dr. Ni leads a team working on various types of energy storage systems including rechargeable ion batteries, supercapacitors, and redox flow cells, with a particular focus on fundamental physics, chemistry, and materials in these devices. Dr. Ni has published 13 patents (8 issued and 5 filed), 2 book chapters, and 90 peer-reviewed papers in journals including Advanced Materials (3), Advanced Energy Materials (3), Advanced Functional Materials(2), Nano Letters (1), Nano Energy (5), and ACS Energy Letters (2). These papers have earned a total citation of 3200 and H-index of 36. He served as Guest Editor of Materials Technology and Functional Materials Letters, and organizing committee member for a series of functional materials conferences.
