Professor Peng-Sheng Wei

National Sun Yat-Sen University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan

Speech Title: Convection Effects on Surface Roughness and Pore Shape Development during

Dr. Peng-Sheng Wei received Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering Department at University of California, Davis, in 1984. He has been a professor in the Department of Mechanical and Electro-Mechanical Engineering of National Sun Yat-Sen University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, China, since 1989. Dr. Wei has contributed to advancing understanding of and to the applications of electron and laser beam, plasma, and resistance welding through theoretical analyses coupled with verification experiments. Investigations also include studies of their thermal and fluid flow processes, and formations of the defects such as humping, rippling, spiking and porosity. Dr. Wei has published more than 70 journal papers. He is a Fellow of AWS (2007), and a Fellow of ASME (2000). He also received the Outstanding Research Achievement Awards from both the National Science Council (2004), and NSYSU (1991, 2001, 2004), the Outstanding Scholar Research Project Winner Award from National Science Council (2008), the Adams Memorial Membership Award from AWS (2008), the Warren F. Savage Memorial Award from AWS (2012), and the William Irrgang Memorial Award from AWS (2014). He has been the Xi-Wan Chair Professor of NSYSU since 2009.

 

Professor Vasudevanpillai Biju

Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan

Vasudevan P. Biju studied chemistry at Kerala University and received his PhD degree with Dr K. George Thomas. Then, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at National Institute of Advanced Interdisciplinary Research, Japan, a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow at Nanotechnology Research Institute, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan, and a Postdoctoral Fellow at Fundamental Science Directorate, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), USA. His postdoctoral research included spectroscopy and microscopy of single-molecules and nanoparticles. Following this, he was invited to National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan, in 2004 as a tenure track scientist, becoming a tenured scientist in 2008 and a chief scientist in 2009. He is also taking (2007) a Visiting Scientist position at Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the University of Texas at Austin, and a Visiting Professor position (2007~) at center for arthropod bioresources and biotechnology, Kerala University. His current research interests include development of nanoparticles and bioconjugated nanoparticles, and exploitation the optical properties of nanobioconjugates towards unraveling of biophysical functions and structures of biomolecules in cells. He is the recipient of 14th Hiraga Gennai Award by the Ozaki Foundation, Japan, and the Young Asian Chemist Award by the Chemical Society of Japan.

Professor UMEMURA Kazuo

Tokyo University of Science, Japan

Speech Title: Nanoconjugates of biomolecules and carbon nanotubes: specific response of near-infrared spectra

Dr. Kazuo Umemura is a full professor of Tokyo University of Science. His specialty is biophysics, especially, nanobioscience and nanobiotechnology. One of his recent interests is nanoscopic research of hybrids of biomolecules and carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Unique structures and physical/chemical properties of the hybrids are promising in biological applications such as nanobiosensors and drug delivery. Dr. Umemura received his B.S. degree in Physics from Nagoya University. His M.S. and Ph.D. degrees were given from Tokyo Institute of Technology. After working at several institutes/universities as a researcher in Japan and in China, he became a professor of Tokyo University of Science. Kagurazaka campus of Tokyo University of Science is located at the center of Tokyo, so five subway/railway lines reach in front of the campus.
