Biography

Dr Ivana Qianqi Lin (MChem in Chemistry and PhD in Electrochemistry at Oxford, UK; PD in Nanophotonics at Cambridge, UK) joined the University of Twente in August 2022 as a Tenure Track Assistant Professor, aiming to develop molecular opto-electronics for nanoreactor. Her research focuses on in-situ Raman and dark-field spectroscopy to study interfacial processes.

Ivana pioneered the in-situ/operando spectro-electrochemistry to detect the redox transition of as few as eight molecules (NatCatal 2021), observe the single molecule-metal bond formation (SciAdv 2022), identify the radical intermediate during doping of organic semiconductors (ACSNano 2022), and fabricate the world’s smallest plasmonic pixels down to 10 nm (SciAdv 2019). Her expertise in fundamental electrochemistry is widely acknowledged (JPCC 2015, cited 150 times, written in the textbook: Nanobiosensors for Point-of-Care Medical Diagnostics; PCCP 2013, written in textbooks: Organic Electrochemistry, Nanoscale Electrochemistry, Pulse Voltammetry in Physical Electrochemistry and Electroanalysis). Since 2022, she leads an independent resarch group at UTwente. She has been invited to publish the sole-authored review (CurrOpinElectrochem 2023, invitation-only journal), and give talks (IUPAC|CHAINS 2023, FOP6 2024).

She also developed the automated spectral analysis for Agilent Technologies and World Health Organization (Vaccine 2023), earned the Top Downloaded Article Award from Wiley, and appointed as Community Board Member for RSC Materials Horizons and Academic Editor for The Innovation Materials.
