Zhaoxiang Deng received his Bachelor's degree in 1995, Ph.D. in 2000, both from University of Science and Technology of China (Hefei, China), which defines him as a chemist. During his Ph.D. study, his research activities were concentrated on nanosecond-resolved voltammetry and computer simulation of electrochemical problems. After completing all his degrees, he had two years' postdoctoral experience on nanostructured inorganic phases at Tsinghua University (Beijing, China). From October of 2002, he was a postdoctoral research associate at Purdue University with his research interest shifted to DNA nanotechnology including DNA assisted nanofabrication and DNA directed self-assembly. In June of 2005, he joined the chemistry department at University of Science and Technology of China as a full professor. Zhaoxiang Deng has authored or coauthored over 50 papers on peer-reviewed journals spanning the areas of DNA nanotechnology, inorganic nanostructures and electrochemistry.

Current research interests

Research in our group is highly interdisciplinary, which covers physical and analytical aspects of chemistry, bio-nanotechnology, material sciences, and even more. We are taking advantage of cutting-edge bio-techniques, synthetic chemistry and molecular self-assembly toward building functional nanosystems, which can have appealing optical, electronic, catalytic or electrochemical properties and are now seeing more and more important applications including analytical sensors. We are also interested in using bio-inspired processes and electrochemical approaches to develop new tools for nanotechnological applications. Finally, our research efforts are directed toward probing the basic physics and chemistry of nano-structured interfaces.
