MAO Lingling
Associate Professor
Associate Professor

Dr. Lingling Mao earned her PhD in Inorganic Chemistry from Northwestern University with Prof. Mercouri Kanatzidis in 2018. She was a post-doctoral fellow in the Materials Research Lab at UC Santa Barbara, working with Prof. Ram Seshadri and Prof. Sir Anthony Cheetham. Her research interests focus on synthesis and characterization on hybrid organic-inorganic materials, their structure-property relations, and their applications for optoelectronic devices. Since 2013, she has published 30 papers, including 8 first-authored papers in JACS (5 ESI highly cited), 1 in Chem, 1 in Chem. Mater. and 2 co-first authored papers in Adv. Energy Mater. and Annu. Rev. Mater. Res., with over 2000 citations (h-index 19). She has been recognized by several awards, including Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad (2017) and Award for Excellence in Graduate Research at Northwestern University (2018).
