ChE's Dr. Letian Dou selected for 2019 ONR YIP Award
Dr. Letian Dou, Assistant Professor in the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University, has been selected for the Office of Naval Research Science & Technology 2019 Young Investigator Award.
The ONR YIP identifies and supports academic scientists and engineers who are in their first or second full-time tenure track position, have received their doctorate after January 2011, and show exceptional promise for doing creative research.
After earning his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering in 2014 from University of California, Los Angeles and completing a sabbatical at University of California, Santa Barbara and Postdoctoral Research position at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and University of California, Berkeley, Dou joined Purdue Chemical Engineering faculty in August 2017.
At Purdue, the Dou Research Group is interested in hybrid materials synthesis and processing for the next generation energy harvesting and optoelectronics devices. Both fundamental understanding of the materials structure-property relationships and the application in high performance energy-efficient devices are emphasized.
Currently, the Dou Research Group’s active projects include:
- Chemistry and physics of two-dimensional hybrid perovskite nano materials.
- High performance perovskite solar cells, LEDs, and transistors.
- Bioelectronics and bio-sensors using intrinsically-stretchable organic and hybrid materials. (associated with Mi-Bio at Purdue)
The objectives of the ONR Young Investigator Program are to attract outstanding young faculty to the Department of the Navy’s Science and Technology research program, while supporting their research and encouraging their teaching and research careers.
