Personal profile


Dr. Yan Wang is an assistant professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Israel Institute of Technology, Technion-Guangdong. Dr. Wang completed PhD in 2018 in Monash University majoring in Chemical Engineering, under the supervision of Prof. Wenlong Cheng and Prof. George P. Simon, with a focus on stretchable electronic skin sensors and energy devices. From 2019 to 2021, Dr. Wang worked as postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Takao Someya’s group (a pioneer of soft electronics) in Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Information Systems, The University of Tokyo, mainly focusing on ultrasoft nanomesh skin electronics and its application in long-term health monitoring. She joined Technion-Guangdong in November 2021.

In soft electronics field, Dr. Yan Wang has published over 30 scientific articles in flagship journals like Science, Science Advances, PNAS, Advanced Functional Materials, Advanced Energy Materials, ACS Nano, Chemical Society Reviews, Materials Horizons, etc., granted 1 Australia patent, and won several scientific awards, such as 2018 Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad, in the last five years. Her research works were featured by renowned CNN, Science, Nature Materials, Science Daily, Chemical & Engineering News, and major Australian media, such as Herald Sun, Australia SBS evening news, and 9 news, and Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun.

After joining Guangdong Technion (GTIIT), Yan will continue focusing on materials development and the practical implementation of soft wearables in real-life situations. The research directions include but are not limited to the following:
1. Nanomesh enabled wearable/implantable electronic devices for applications in biomedical applications and emerging applications such as human-machine interfaces and VR/AR experiences.
2. Design, fabrication, and implementation of ultrathin on-skin sensors/sensor arrays.
3. Investigation and application of unconventional nanowire-based materials in the field of soft optoelectronics.
