ICCME2019 Invited Speakers  

Prof. Jun Song CHEN
University of Electronic Science and Technology of China

Professor Jun Song CHEN received his Ph.D. at Nanyang Technological University in 2012. After that, he worked at the Max Plank Institute of Colloids and Interfaces as an Alexander von Humboldt researcher from 2013 to 2014. He is now a Professor at the School of Materials and Energy, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China. He was one of the “Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researchers” in 2015 and 2016, and “Elsevier Chinese Highly Cited Researchers” in 2017. His research interests include the design of nanostructured materials for energy-related applications, such as supercapacitors, lithium-ion batteries, and water splitting.

Assoc. Prof. Aleksey Vedyagin

In 1997 I was graduated from Omsk State University. From 1999 to 2001 I was post-graduate student at Boreskov Institute of Catalysis of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia. I defended my PhD thesis entitled “Catalytic dehydrogenation of methanol over supported copper catalysts” in 2005. From 2004 till 2014 I was an associate professor at Novosibirsk State Technical University, Russia. At the same time, since 2004 till 2008 I was a scientific researcher at Boreskov Institute of Catalysis. In 2008 I became a scientific secretary of the institute. Now I am a deputy director on science of BIC, head of Laboratory for nanostructured catalysts and sorbents research, head of Department of materials science and functional materials. My scientific interests are heterogeneous catalysis, oxide and metal catalysts, carbon nanostructures, carbon-based composites, dense and porous membranes, nanomaterials, nanotoxicology, etc.
