Speaker Biography (Aimin Song)

Professor Song spent three years of fellowships at University of Glasgow and University of Munich awarded by the Royal Society and Alexander von Humboldt foundation after his PhD. He then worked at Lund University as a Swedish Natural Science Research Council Open Postdoc and then a guest lecturer. He moved to Manchester as a Lecturer in 2002, and became Professor of Nanoelectronics in 2006. His research is to explore novel nanodevice concepts, particularly ultra-high-speed, zero-threshold nano-diodes, for printed electronics as well as energy harvesting. He received a Royal Society Brian Mercer Feasibility Award and Distinguished Achievement Medal for "Researcher of the Year" of the University of Manchester.

University of Manchester logo
The University of Manchester (UoM) is an internationally recognized institution with a reputation for pioneering research. The University engages in internationally significant research in a wide range of subjects. One recent evidence of the strong research environment of UoM is that the Noble Prize in Physics 2010 was awarded jointly to Professor Andre Geim and Konstantin in the field of graphene. Energy research and teaching is carried out at UoM across a wide range of areas centered on the themes of renewable energy resources, production, transportation and consumption. Linking these themes are the areas of energy policy, economics and societal impact.
