Personal Profile

Dr Yi-Lun Ying is currently a Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the State Key Laboratory of  Analytical Chemistry for Life Science, Nanjing University, and a co-PI of Chemistry and Biomedicine Innovation Center, Nanjing University. She has obtained her B. Sc in Fine Chemistry and Ph. D in Analytical Chemistry from the East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST). After a doctoral exchange studying in the University of Birmingham, Dr Ying carried out her postdoctoral research on nanopore and nanoelectrode at ECUST. Since 2016, she started her independent work to focus on the nanospectroelectrochemistry for revealing the heterogeneous structure-activity relationship of the single molecules at ECUST. She has co-authored over 70 peer-reviewed publications including Nat. Nanotech., Nat. Protoc., Nat. Commun., J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Chem, Chem. Sci.; and 8 patents. The total citations of her publications exceed 1800 with an H index of 24. She has given more than 15 oral presentations including eight invited lectures. Dr Ying has received seven awards and honors, including the L'Oreal-UNESCO International Rising Talents (2016), “Excellent Young Scholars”of National Natural Science Foundation of China (2019), National Ten Thousand Talent Program for Young Top-Notch Talent (2019).
