2021 Outstanding Research Award of Ministry of Science and Technology
Congratulations to Dr. Shiao-Wei Kuo, Distinguished Professor from the Department of Materials and Optoelectronic Science, for receiving the 2021 Outstanding Research Award of Ministry of Science and Technology, and he stands out as the only winner in the category of Polymer and Fiber this year. What is particularly worthy of mention is he was granted the Award twice both in the year of 2017 and 2021. The students and faculty of National Sun Yat-sen University share his outstanding accomplishment with great honor.
The Outstanding Research Award is granted annually to those with scientific and technological talents who have shown outstanding research performance and have dedicated themselves to a career of conducting or applied research to improve the level of Taiwan’s academic research and status in the international community. Dr. Kuo’s research specialty is on non-covalent interactions in polymers, organic/inorganic nanocomposites, self-assembled polymeric nanostructures, nanoporous materials, and low surface energy materials. Recently, he applies his research into various fields, including lithium battery materials, supercapacitors, photocatalytic hydrogen evolution, carbon dioxide capture and conversion. He also participated in the development of single crystal growth technology for a third-generation semiconductor-silicon carbide and the development of key materials for national defense.
