Shu Yang Honored for Her Work in the Field of Colloid and Surface Chemistry

Shu Yang, the Joseph Bordogna Professor in the departments of materials science and engineering and chemical and biomolecular engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, is the 2023 recipient of the Langmuir Lectureship Award from the American Chemical Society.

The award recognizes individuals working in the interdisciplinary field of colloid and surface chemistry. Dr. Yang was selected to receive the award for “contributions to the geometric design and controlled assembly of colloids and liquid crystals at surfaces and interfaces. Her work has led to significant advancements in the understanding of how to manipulate molecular and colloidal organization and defect patterning, thus enabling the synthesis and design of soft and composite materials with unique optical, mechanical and responsive properties.”

Dr. Yang will deliver a lecture on her research at a dedicated symposium and award ceremony during the Fall 2023 National Meeting of the American Chemical Society.

Professor Yang joined the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania in 2004. She was promoted to associate professor in 2009 and to full professor in 2013. Dr. Yang is a graduate of Fudan University in China, where she majored in materials science. She holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in chemistry and chemical biology from Cornell University.
