Dr. Jun Jiao

Dr. Jun Jiao holds an M.S. in Physics and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Arizona and is currently a professor of Mechanical & Materials Engineering and Physics. She is also the Director of the Center for Electron Microscopy and Nanofabrication at Portland State University (PSU). Dr. Jiao's principal research interests are focused on nanoscale materials and devices, electron microscopy, and characterization techniques. Current research in the Jiao lab is focused on the development of nanofabrication techniques for the property-controlled growth of graphene and its metal and metal oxide hybrids, nanotubes, nanowires, and nanocrystals for use in nanoelectronic devices with the potential for industrial applications. Another important effort is to use nanoscale materials and devices for biomedical applications including cancer therapy, cancer vaccine, and adjuvant for infectious diseases. The results of her nanomaterials research are documented in more than 180 publications and two issued patents.
