1月9日 Xuehua Zhang:Surface Nanodroplets: Formation, Dissolution, and Applications


  Professor Xuehua Zhang completed her PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and became a postdoc in Australia. She was an Associate Professor in chemical engineering in RMIT University before she moved from Australia to Canada in 2017. Her research topics cover micro/nanobubbles on surfaces, dilution-triggered liquid-liquid phase separation in confined spaces,chemical reactions of oil nanodroplets, evaporation and de-wetting of multicomponent drops and functional surfaces.Prof. Zhang is a Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) in Soft Matter and Interfaces at the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, University of Alberta.
