Kevin H. Shaughnessy教授简介：
Professor Shaughnessy obtained his BS degree from the University of Nebraska in 1992, and his Ph.D from Stanford University in 1998. He moved to Yale University in 1997 to work on Organometallic Chemistry before joining the University of Alabama. Professor Shaughnessy has served the chemistry department chair at the University of Alabama since 2009, and is an active faculty member of the Center for Green Manufacturing of The University of Alabama. Dr. Shaughnessy has been Chosen as a Distinguished Teaching Fellow in the College of Arts and Sciences. He is serving on the steering committee for Alabama Science in Motion (ASIM) program and as chair of the awards committee for Alabama ACS section. Research in the Shaughnessy group focuses on organometallic chemistry. By understanding the mechanism by which organometallic species catalyze important transformations, the Shaughnessy group works to develop new or improved synthetic methodologies. Much of his research focuses on the use of alternative solvents in catalysis in an effort to develop more environmentally benign catalytic processes. He has published more than 50 high quality papers in top journals in various areas of organic and organicmetallic chemistry.
Professor Pan received his B.S. and M.S. from Lanzhou University in 1998 and 2001, respectively. He obtained his Ph.D. in 2006 from the University of Rochester and did his postdoc research with Professor Allen J. Bard (University of Texas) from 2006 to 2008 before moving to the University of Alabama. Professor Pan has received numerous prestigious awards including 2010 DOE-EPSCoR awards, Irving S. Sigal Postdoctoral fellowship 2006-2008. His research efforts primarily focus on electrochemistry and single molecule spectroscopy. His group is using in-situ spectroscopic to study the adsorption at electrode and electrocatalysis, and electrogenerated chemiluminescence with high time and spatial resolution. He has published 30 quality articles in various areas of electrochemistry and optical spectroscopy, including PNAS, J. Am. Chem. Soc., ACS Nano, Nano Letter and J. Phys. Chem.
