Biography

Dr Run Zhang carried out his doctoral studies in the State Key Laboratory of Fine Chemicals at Dalian University of Technology, China. He moved to the Physics and Astronomy Department of Macquarie University as a postdoctoral research fellow immediately after finishing his PhD in July 2012. Then, he won a highly competitive Macquarie University Research Fellowship (MQRF), and took up this independent position in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Science in January 2013. In January 2015, he was appointed as a visiting research fellow in Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN), The University of Queensland (UQ). In December 2015, Dr Zhang was appointed as an adjunct associate professor in University of Science and Technology Liaoning, China. In February 2016, he re-located to AIBN, UQ to work on a research associate position. Dr Zhang is an expert in the field of synthetic and analytical chemistry, nanomaterial science, nano-/bio-interface (surface chemistry), and biophotonics. As an interdisciplinary scientist, he has made significant contributions in the respects of: i) development of a series of specific biosensors to probe important biomarkers in live systems; ii) fabricating functional nanomaterial for cancer early diagnosis and imaging guided tumour therapy; iii) inventing several chemosensors to detect the environmental pollutants; iv) engineering next generation nanotechnology for data security against forgery. Since 2014, Dr Zhang has voluntarily served as the editorial board and the reviewer for many international journals.
