ZHANG Mingqiu
Professor
Director of Key Laboratory for Polymeric Composite and Functional Materials of Ministry of Education
Director of Materials Science Institute

Academic qualification:
1991: Ph.D. in Polymer Chemistry & Physics, Sun Yat-sen University.
1982: Bachelor of Science in Metal Physics, Sun Yat-sen University.

Research and scientific achievements:
Over thirty-year systematic experience in polymers, polymer blends and polymer composites, with particular interests in their structure-property-processing relationships, characterization techniques, and applications as functional materials. Prof. Zhang has published 1 monograph, 11 book chapters, and more than 400 papers in refereed scientific journals on the general topics including mechanical properties of polymers and reinforced polymer composites, nanoparticles surface modification and nanaparticles/polymer composites, bio-composites from renewable resources, interfacial structure in composite materials, macromolecular physics, electrical conductive performance of polymer composites, friction and wear of polymers and composites, and self-healing polymeric materials. He also holds 51 patents. Prof. Zhang serves as a member of Asian-Australasian Association for Composite Materials (AACM) Council and the standing council of Chinese Society for Composites, and the president of Guangdong Society for Composites. He is on the editorial board of 8 scientific journals including Composites Science & Technology (Asian Editor), Soft Materials, Polymers & Polymer Composites, Express Polymer Letters, Acta Materiae Compositae Sinica (Associate Editor), Acta Polymerica Sinica, Journal of Functional Polymers, and Journal of Materials Science and Engineering. In 1997, he received the prestigious Fellowship from the Natural Science Foundation of China for the Outstanding Young Scientists and in 2005; he was selected as a Cheung Kong Scholar by Li Ka Shing Foundation and Ministry of Education of China.
