Dr. Jay Pang is the Member and a Senior Technical Consultant of
He earned his Ph.D. degree in Polymer Chemistry and Physics from Peking University in 2001.
He then spent several years working at the University of Tokyo,
Tulane University, and the University of New Mexico/Sandia
National Labs as a postdoctoral researcher. Dr. Pang was promoted to an Assistance Research Professor of
UNM/NSF Center for Micro-Engineered Materials at the University of New Mexico,
in 2006. From 2007 to 2010, he worked at Luna Innovations
as a Materials Research Scientist and then a Senior Research Scientist on
SBIR/STTR projects. Dr. Pang has a solid and broad research background in materials science, including
sol-gel metal oxides (e.g., titania, silica); colloidal metallic nanoparticles dispersed in water and
organic solvents; surface modification of metallic and ceramic particles; high surface area metal oxides
and carbonaceous materials; molecular and nanoparticle self-assembly; functional polymers, coatings and thin
films; polymer/inorganic filler nanocomposites; ballistic polymeric materials; conductive adhesives, inks and
sensors; and materials printing. During his career, Dr. Pang has published 51 peer-reviewed papers
(27 as the first author) in Journal of the American Chemical Society, Advanced Materials, Small,
Applied Physics Letters, Chemistry of Materials, The Journal of Physical Chemistry B, Chemical Communications,
Carbon, and other journals.
