Prof. Dr. Shi graduated from the Department of Chemistry, Nanjing University in 1985, received his Ph. D degree in the same University in 1992. Then he joined the Department of Chemistry of Nanjing University and promoted to full professor in 1995. In 2000, he moved to Tsinghua University as a Professor of Chemistry. His research interests are focused on functional polymers, especially, the syntheses and applications of conducting polymers and carbon nanomaterials. He received the 2nd grade award of Natural Science of China and the youth knowledge innovation prize of Chinese Chemical Society and BASF Company in 2004.
