About the Author

Prof. Ning Wu is Associate Professor in the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department at the Colorado School of Mines, Golden, CO, USA. He obtained his PhD in Chemical Engineering in 2008 from Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA. His research goal is to study and understand the fundamental principles of self- and guided-assembly of nano-“building blocks”. HIs awards include the Porter Ogden Jacobus Honorific Fellowship and the Kristine M. Layn Award from Princeton University, and the National Science Foundation CAREER award for his research in anisotropic particles. He has published more than 35 articles in international scientific journals.

Prof. Daeyeon Lee is Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA. He obtained his PhD in 2007 in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA. His research efforts include the understanding of the behavior of Janus particles at fluid interfaces. Prof. Lee has published more than 85 articles in international scientific journals and he has given more than 60 invited presentations at international conferences. He has received numerous academic honors and awards.

Dr. Alberto Striolo is Professor of Molecular Thermodynamics in the Department of Chemical Engineering, University College London, London, UK. He obtained a PhD in Chemical Engineering in 2002 from the University of Padova, Italy. His research interests focus on fundamental properties of interfaces, which he studies using an arsenal of computational and sometimes experimental techniques. Applications range from energy storage in electric double layer capacitors, to innovative manufacturing and energy production technologies, as well as particulate systems. Prof. Striolo was awarded the University of Oklahoma Presidential Professorship (2013), the American Chemical Society, COMP division, HP Outstanding Junior Faculty Award (2011), and the University of Oklahoma Regents’ Award for Superior Research and Creative Activity (2011). Author of over 130 peer-reviewed journal articles, Prof. Striolo has been elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and Fellow of the Institute of Physics (2017).
