Dr. Yongmei Zheng
Professor, School of Chemistry and Environment, Beihang University, P.R. China
Yongmei Zheng, is a professor at School of Chemistry and Environment, Key Laboratory of Bio-inspired Smart Interfacial Science and Technology of Ministry of Education, in Beihang University.
Research interests are focused on biological and bioinspired surfaces with gradient micro- and nanostructures to control dynamic wettability. Interdisciplinary methods of physical, chemical, and nanotechnology are used to fabricate the bioinspired functional surfaces, reveal the wetting mechanism in cooperative effect of micro-/nano-structures, and develop the surfaces with characteristics of water repellency, anti-icing, anti-frosting, or fog-harvesting, tiny droplet transport, and so on.
Publications are included in Nature, Sci. Rep., Adv. Mater., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., ACS Nano, Adv. Funct. Mater., Small, Chem. Commun., J. Mater. Chem. A, Nanoscales, ACS Appl. Mater. Interface, Soft Matter, Langmuir, Appl. Phys. Lett., etc., with 12 Cover stories, a book ?bioinspired wettability surfaces: Development in micro- and nanostructures?.
