Yanli Zhao currently holds the Lee Soo Ying Professorship at Nanyang Technological University. He received his B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry from Nankai University. He was a postdoctoral scholar with Prof. Sir Fraser Stoddart at the University of California Los Angeles and subsequently at Northwestern University. He also carried out postdoctoral research with Prof. Jeffrey Zink at the University of California Los Angeles.
The research programs in the Zhao group focus on the development of integrated systems for diagnostics and therapeutics, as well as porous materials for gas/energy storage and catalysis. They utilize interdisciplinary approaches to investigate the emerging problems at the forefront of chemistry and materials sciences.
