Weixia Zhang
School of Engineering and Applied Sciences

Weixia Zhang is a post-doctoral fellow in the Weitz group at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University. He received his B.S and M.S. in Chemistry from the Tsinghua University at Beijing, and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Purdue University in 2014. His research interests mainly focus on material science, including design and synthesis of nanomaterials (such as graphene, silicon nanowires), as well as exploring bioapplications of these nanomaterials. As part of the MRSEC IRG 2, he is using microfluidic techniques to fabricate functional materials, including preparation of spherical, polyurethane microparticles through microfluidic processing for 3-D printing. Weixia is also responsible for MRSEC thermal analysis facilities.
