Dr Zhongfan Jia is currently an ARC future fellow and an associate group leader in the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN), at UQ. He received his PhD. degree in polymer chemistry and physics from Fudan University, China, in 2007. He then took a postdoc position in the Centre for Advanced Macromolecular Design (CAMD) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) with Prof. Tom Davis, where he worked with RAFT polymerization for polymer/biomolecules conjugation and biomedical applications. In 2009, he took the UQ Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and moved to the University of Queensland and worked with Prof. Michael Monteiro at the AIBN. His current research interests are (i) Living polymerization for complex polymer architecture; (ii) Synthesis of polymer nanostructures for biological application; (iii) Polymer-based electrochemical material for energy storage; (iv) Polymer-supported catalytic reaction. Dr Jia has authored 73 publications include three book chapters.
