Prof. Dr. Yan Lu receives a professorship at the University of Potsdam

Dr. Yan Lu is a group leader at the Institute for “Soft Matter and Functional Materials”. At HZB, she is researching functional hybrid materials that consist of colloid particles.  As of 1 April 2017, Yan Lu has been appointed as W2 Professor for Polymer-based Hybrid Materials at the University of Potsdam.

Yan Lu is an experienced expert in the field of colloid chemistry. With her group, she is developing colloid materials for energy storage, catalysts, sensors, solar cells and optical components. Her joint appointment by HZB and the Institute of Chemistry of the University of Potsdam further reinforces the networking between the two institutes. Yan Lu will continue to supervise her workgroup at HZB while also teaching at the University.

Short biography:

Prof. Dr. Yan Lu has worked at the Institute for “Soft Matter and Functional Materials” at HZB since 2009. Before that, she was a postdoc and research assistant at the Chair of Physical Chemistry at the University of Bayreuth. She completed her doctor’s degree from 2001 to 2005 at Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry, Technische Universität Dresden. Yan Lu completed her Master’s degree in materials science at Donghua University in Shanghai, China.
