Professor WANG Junling obtained his B.S. degree from Nanjing University in 1999, and Ph.D. degree from University of Maryland, College Park in 2005. After spending one year at PennState University as a postdoc, he joined Nanyang Technological University, Singapore as an Assistant Professor in 2006. He was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2011 and Professor in 2017. His research activities focus on 3D and 2D multiferroic materials. These materials possess a wide range of exotic properties such as ferroelectricity, ferromagnetism, and multiferroicity. The long-range orders and cross-couplings between them lead to fascinating physics and various applications. He has published >150 papers in high impact journals, including Science, Nature Communications, Science Advances, PRB and APL. His work has been cited more than 11300 times.
• Magneto-electric and opto-electric couplings in ferroelectric/multiferroic materials
• Functional intrinsic 2D materials (ferroelectric, ferromagnetic and multiferroic)
• Resistive switching materials and their applications in memory and neuromorphic computing
