Short Description

 
Kenneth Lau is a Professor and Associate Head in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Drexel University, Philadelphia, USA. He is also currently the director of a US Department of Education GAANN (Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need) Fellowship Program. He received his B.Eng.(Chemical) from the National University of Singapore in 1995 and his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2000. He was a postdoctoral associate at MIT before joining Drexel in 2006. His research centers on polymer thin films and devices, with interests in reaction engineering, process development, and materials and device engineering for applications in energy capture, energy storage, nanostructured materials, area-selective processing, and surface and interfacial design. He has authored/co-authored over 60 journal articles (including Nature Energy, Nature Communications, Nano Letters, and ACS Nano) and 7 book chapters, and is an inventor/co-inventor on 3 patents and 2 patent applications. He received the US National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2008 and was a Visiting Associate Professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2013.
