Jianbing “Jimmy” Jiang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati since August 2018. He earned his Bachelor’s degree from Jiangnan University, China in 2007. He attained his Master’s degree from East China University of Science and Technology in 2010, where he worked with Prof. He Tian on the design and synthesis of a series of polymeric chemosensors for the detection of environmentally hazardous ions (e.g. Hg2+). Then he moved to the US in 2010 to peruse his Ph.D. degree at North Carolina State University (Ph.D. advisor: Jonathan S. Lindsey), and his research was concentrated on the development of synthetic methodologies for the preparation of various property-tunable photosensitizers and incorporation of these chromophores into self-assembled materials for light-harvesting and energy-transfer studies. In 2015, he joined Yale University as a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Chemistry and Yale Energy Sciences Institute, working with Professors Gary W. Brudvig and Robert H. Crabtree, where he designed, synthesized and characterized novel inorganic catalysts and organometallic materials for small molecule activation, specifically for water oxidation and proton reduction to value-added products. He was promoted to an Associate Research Scientist in 2017.
