Nan Jiang, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Chemistry
University of Illinois Chicago

Nan Jiang is an Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of Illinois Chicago. He received his Ph.D. in condensed matter physics from the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Science (Beijing, China). He was also a joint Ph.D. student at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research (Stuttgart, Germany). Following a postdoc at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL), he joined the faculty of Chemistry at the University of Illinois Chicago in 2015. Jiang’s research focuses on applying ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) scanning probe-based nanotechnology in surface-supported nanostructures design and properties investigation. He recently developed a hybrid technique by combining UHV scanning probe microscopy with optical spectroscopy to understand and predict the surface chemistry at the angstrom scale. He is the author of over 50 publications, including Science, Nature Communications, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Physical Review Letters, Nano Letters, ACS Nano. He received National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award and American Vacuum Society Prairie Chapter Early Career Researcher Award in 2020. In 2022, he was awarded American Chemical Society Richard P. Van Duyne Award in Experimental Physical Chemistry. He has been recently named an American Vacuum Society AVS Fellow in 2023.
