University of Waterloo
Shirley Tang carries out research in nanotechnology. Central to her effort is the creation of materials and devices based on graphene, carbon nanotubes, and their chemical derivatives, primarily for biomedical applications. Prior to joining Waterloo, she pursued postdoctoral work (2003-2005) in Professor H. Dai’s laboratory at Stanford University. Utilizing the unique physical properties of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNT), she developed advanced sensory devices including SWNT-Field-Effect Transister (FET) biosensor array and ultra-sensitive miniature X-ray detectors. During 2000-2003, she worked at private companies in Silicon Valley, California, U.S.A. She received her PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1999 under the supervision of Professor D.G. Cory. The novel Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) methodology and instruments she developed for single-cell and small organism imaging brought significant advancement to the field of NMR microscopy. Tang joined the Department of Chemistry at the University of Waterloo in February 2006.
