Pinshane Y. Huang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She also holds appointments in the Materials Research Laboratory and Beckman Institute at UIUC. Pinshane holds a Ph.D. and an M.S. in Applied and Engineering Physics from Cornell University, as well as a B.A, in Physics from Carleton College. Her research has been featured in Nova, National Geographic, BusinessWeek, CBS News, Discover Magazine, and the Guinness Book of World Records.
Her group uses transmission electron microscopy and electron energy loss spectroscopy to understand nanomaterials and devices at the atomic scale. Using recent advances in aberration-corrected electron microscopy, we aim to image the structure, bonding, electronic, optical properties of materials with unprecedented precision. Together, this research aims to harness the incredible insights of atom-by-atom microscopy to design novel nanomaterials and devices.
