Dr. Hao Yan joins UNT Chemistry Department

The UNT Chemistry Department is pleased to announce that Dr. Hao Yan is joining our faculty as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in August, 2019.

Dr. Yan obtained his Ph.D. in chemistry from Harvard University, where he worked on developing chemistry and materials for next-generation nanoelectronic devices under the advisement of Prof. Charles M. Lieber. From 2012 to 2019, he was a postdoctoral fellow and research associate at Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, where he collaborated with Profs. Nicholas A. Melosh and Zhi-Xun Shen. Dr. Yan's work at Stanford was focused on the fundamental science and applications of molecular and nano-scale diamonds.

Dr. Yan's research interests lie at the interface between chemical and mechanical processes, with particular emphasis on understanding the fundamental structure-property relationship of molecules and materials under mechanical stress and extreme conditions for the design of novel functional systems.
