Ping Cui

Dr. Ping Cui,an eminent materials scientist,directs the research on nano-materials and internal dissipation.Currently she maintains an active involvement in the research on organic / inorganic nano-composite polymer. As the first Director of CNITECH, she has helped to establish CNITECH as a leading center for research in materials with a strong emphasis on fundamental and applied materials research. She was instrumental in the creation of CNITECH’s new home in NingBo, as well as the new regional laboratory for the study of materials.

Prior to joining CNITECH, Dr. Cui spent 9 years in the Institute of Solid State Physics, CAS, where she held several management positions. She served as Director from 2001-2004, Deputy Director from 1995-2001, and Vice President of the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science CAS at the same time. In 1995 she was the CEO of TUOPU High-Tech company. Dr. Cui started her scientific career as the Deputy Chief of the Laboratoryof Internal Friction and Defects in Solids, CAS in 1991.

In 1999, Dr.Cui was a Guest Scientist at Kyoto University in Japan; and a Visiting Researcher at International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Italy in 1992. From 1987 to 1988, she worked at the New Material Institute of Saarland University in German for the study of nanomaterials. Dr. Cui holds a number of awards. She was the winner of Science & Technology Advancement Award of CAS in 1986 and the recipient of Natural Science Award in 1993. She won the President Award of CAS for Meritorious Service in 2004 and the Science & Technology Advancement Award of Changzhou City. In 2005 she was honored the Science & Technology Innovation Award of Ningbo City. Dr. Cui earned a number of subsides including President Scholarship of CAS, Special Allowance of State Council, and Special Allowance of Anhui Province.

Dr. Cui is the Deputy Head of the Center of Nano Science and Technology in CAS, and the Chairman of Nano Material Expert Committee in Anhui Province. She received her Bachelor’s from Anhui University in 1982, and Ph.D from the Institute of Solid State Physics, CAS in 1990. She has applied for more than 10 patents. As author of more than 40 research papers and a book named《Nano Material》, she is an influential scientist and outstanding contributor to the field of nanomaterial.
