Resume of Career

Yi Long received her Ph.D. degrees in Materials Science from Cambridge University, United Kingdom under full sponsorship of Overseas Research Scholarship (ORS), United Kingdom, Cambridge Trust, and Graduate Scholarship of Selwyn College. She is currently a full Professor at CUHK and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Her current research focuses on developing smart functional materials, to give devices with a greater range of properties than is usually obtained. Her major research includes smart surface for energy saving, flexible devices, soft electronics and nanodevice fabrications. Before joining CUHK, she worked at Chartered Semiconductor (now GlobalFoundries Inc.) and Nanyang Technological University. Her early career in NTU started with successful Lab-to-Fab technology transfer for Seagate Technology.

Current Research Interests

Functional materials, Smart windows, Flexible devices, Soft electronics, Nanodevice fabrications.
