Biographical Sketch

Hongting Pu, born in 1966, Jiangsu Province, China, got his Bachelor’s degree at Jiangsu Polytechnic University in 1988. From 1988 to 1990, he worked as an assistant engineer in Changzhou Tianma Company. He got his Master’s degree at Shanghai University in 1993, and then his Ph.D degree at Shanghai Jiaotong University in 1996. From 1999 to 2000, he worked as a post-doctoral fellow in Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPIP), Mainz, Germany. He has joined Tongji University since1996 as lecturer (1996), associate professor (1998), professor (2003), chair of Department of Polymer Materials (2000-2003), director of Institute of Functional Polymers (2003-present), successively. He was awarded the Excellent Young Teachers of Shanghai in 1999, the Auroral Scholar of Shanghai in 2005, and the New Century Excellent Talents in Chinese Universities in 2006. He was a visiting professor in The University of Southern Mississippi (USA, 2003), MPIP (Germany, 2006), University of Stuttgart (Germany, 2006), University of California, Santa Barbara (USA, 2008). His current research involves proton conducting polymers (proton exchange membranes), vapor deposition polymerization, damping materials (magnetorheological materials), nanomaterials, etc. Hongting Pu has got 19 Chinese invention patents, 3 books and 145 papers published (total citation > 200) . He is also the member of the editorial boards of Macromolecules: An Indian J., Chemistry: An Indian J., J. Functional Mater. (Chinese), and Chemical Engineering (Chinese).
