Jinhu Yang got his doctoral degree (Physical Chemistry) at Peking University in 2005. He joined as Research Associate in Prof. Shihe Yang’ Lab of HKUST in the fall of 2005. Then, he entered the Institute of Frontier Science of Tokyo University, Japan in 2006 as Foreign Researcher supported by JSPS organization, conducting the preparation, characterization and property exploration of magnetic materials and energy materials. In 2009, he joined in Prof. Lukas Schemidlt-Mende’s group of Munich University and started research of nanostructured hybrid solar cells. Jinhu Yang has published over 40 refereed papers, which have been cited over 2000 times (H-index: 21).
