Biography

Dr Aimin Yu received her PhD in Chemistry at Nanjing University. After being a Lecturer at the same university for three years, Aimin took a postdoctoral position at Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (Germany). Aimin moved to Australia in 2003 and worked as a research fellow at the University of Melbourne, and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Functional Materials (University of Queensland). Aimin joined Swinburne in 2010. Currently, she is a Professor in Chemistry. Aimin served as the Academic Director of Research Training for the School of Science in 2017-2020.

Her main research fields are focused on the synthesis, functionalization and application of advanced materials, including nanoparticles, 2D nanosheets, thin film/coatings and composite materials. The applications of materials have been focused on but not limit to biosensing, drug delivery, catalysis, functional coatings and waste water treatment. Aimin has co-authored more than 250 publications including 200+ journal articles in these areas with an h-index of 47.
