Biography
Biography: 

Dr Fang Xie joined the Department of Materials at Imperial College London in November 2008 as a post-doctoral researcher. She is currently a Lecturer in the same department. Her research concerns novel nanomaterials synthesis and fabrication and their applications in energy and life sciences. Metal and semiconducting nanoparticles are prepared by both bottom-up and top-down methods such as colloidal lithography, nanoimprint lithography, and wet chemical synthesis/self-assembly.

Fang received her B.Eng from Xi’an Jiaotong University, China and M.Eng from the National University of Singapore. She then spent 3 years working in the biotech-industry in Singapore. In 2005, She moved to Australia to carry out her PhD study at the interface of physics and life sciences. Her doctoral work at Macquarie University was on the use of metal nanostructures to study fluorescence enhancement, showing enhanced fluorescence for bio-sensing applications.
