    Yanlei Yu, Department of Materials Science, Fudan University, will give a lecture of "Photodeformable Liquid Crystal Polymers"to our school On June 20, 2014. Her research is about developing photodeformable CLCPs which could be photo-regulated by low-energy light such as UV.
    Yanlei Yu is Professor in the Department of Materials Science at Fudan University. She graduated in applied chemistry from Anhui University in 1993 and obtained her Master’s degree in polymer chemistry and physics from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1996. She gained her Doctoral degree in environmental chemistry and engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology and was promoted to Full Professor at Fudan University in 2004. She obtained New Century Excellent Talents Fund of the Ministry of Education (2004), Shanghai Shuguang Scholar (2005), Shanghai Science and Technology Rising Star (2006), Distinguished Young Scholars Award from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) (2012), etc.. Her research interests focus on the development of photodeformable smart materials and light-controllable interface materials with photosensitive polymers and liquid crystal polymers. She has over 50 publications in the peer-reviewed journals with more than 1500 citations, such as Nature, J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Adv. Funct. Mater., etc..
