Li-Qiong Wang Senior Lecturer in Chemistry

Dr. Li-Qiong Wang joined the Department of Chemistry at Brown University in January 2010 after working for the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) as a staff scientist for 17 years. At Brown, she will start by guiding undergraduate students in the laboratory portion of Chem 0330, "Equilibrium, Rate and Structure," which explores the electronic structure of atoms and molecules, thermodynamics, solution equilibrium, electrochemistry, chemical kinetics, and reaction mechanisms. Dr. Wang wants to use her extensive research experience to improve the undergraduate teaching and research.
Dr. Li-Qiong Wang received her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley in 1991. She has over 100 peer-reviewed publications. She has been a co-winner for several awards and recognitions, including the R&D 100 Award, the Discover Magazine Awards Finalist, and DOE's Materials Science Awards. Her research interest has centered on studying nanoporous materials and using state-of-the-art nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging techniques to study self-assembled functionalized nanostructural materials. Her research goal has been to gain a more fundamental understanding of the porosity and other properties of energy materials and how they may contribute to a world looking to optimize energy use.
