The SEAC –Young Investigators Award will be presented to Bo Zhang, of the University of Washington (UW) (Seattle, Washington) on Monday afternoon at Pittcon 2013. The award is presented annually by the Society for Electroanalytical Chemistry (West Lafayette, Indiana).

Zhang worked with Henry White of the University of Utah (Salt Lake City, Utah) and was awarded a PhD in 2006. He started his independent career at the UW in 2008 after completing his postdoctoral training with Andy Ewing. His research has been focused on developing and using nanoelectrodes to study electrocatalysis of single nanoparticles and to perform nanoscale imaging of neuronal communication. Zhang’s group has developed molecular-scale electrodes to study electrocatalytic properties of single nanoparticles and has also invented a fluorescence method to report electrochemical kinetics. Zhang was awarded an Alfred Sloan Fellowship in 2012.
