About the Author
Dr. Nianjun Yang is working as a senior scientist and the leader of the Nanomaterials group at the Institute of Materials Engineering, University of Siegen, Germany. He worked as the group leader of Biosensor team at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics (IAF) Germany from 2008 to 2014, as an invited researcher at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Japan from 2006 to 2008 and as a postdoctoral researcher at New Mexico State University, USA from 2005 to 2006. He received his PhD from the University of Fukui, Japan in 2005. His current research interests cover CVD growth of carbon and related materials as well as their applications for electrochemistry, biointerfaces, and sustainable chemistry. He has published more than 130 papers in peer-reviewed journals, edited 1 book series, 4 books, contributed 10 book chapters, and delivered 40 invited talks and 60 oral presentations at international conferences. He has been a program member of Hasselt Diamond Workshop since 2013 and the International conference of Diamond and Related Materials since 2014 as well as Nanodiamond and New Carbon (NDNC) in 2016. He is a guest-editor of nine journals (e.g., Small, Nanoscale, ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces, Carbon, Diamond and Related Materials, Electroanalysis, Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry, and Physica Status Solidi A ), and an advisory member of the journals of Diamond and Related Materials as well as Scientific Reports. He has organized various 10 times carbon-related symposia at E-MRS Spring and Fall Meetings.
