Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Qing Dai is a professor in Nanophotonics at National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST). He received his BEng and MEng [Electronic & Electrical Engineering] from Imperial College, London, before coming to the University of Cambridge to pursue a PhD in Nanophotonics at the Department of Engineering. After completing his PhD in 2011, Qing continued as a Research Associate at CMMPE (Centre of molecular materials for photonics and electronics) working in collaboration with Samsung to develop novel nanophotonic devices using patterned-aligned carbon nanotubes (CNTs) for applications in 3D display.  Since 2012, he joined National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST).
