Xingfa Gao received his PhD from the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2006. After working as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Molecular Science (Japan) and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (USA), he returned to the Institute of High Energy Physics as a professor in 2011. His research interests lie in applying computational methods to studying (1) the chemistry of nanomaterials, and (2) the chemical reaction principles underlying the bio-toxicity of nanomaterials. He also has great interest in developing efficient computational methods for the above studies. In the next few years, his study will be focused on toxicity-related chemistry for sp2 carbon nanomaterials including fullerenes, endohedral metallofullerenes, carbon nanotubes and graphene. Besides this, his study will also cover the chemistry in toxicity for other nanomaterials such as gold nanoparticles. For more information, please visit:
