Shyue Ping Ong

University of California San Diego, USA

Dr. Ong received his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2011, and an MEng and BA from the University of Cambridge in 1999. He has been an assistant professor at the Department of NanoEngineering at the University of California, San Diego since Jul 2013, where he leads the Materials Virtual Lab, a group of scientists dedicated to the application of first principles calculations and informatics to accelerate materials design. He is the recipient of prestigious DOE Early Career Research Program award in 2014, and the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Program award in 2016. He is also one of the founding developers of the Materials Project (www.materialsproject.org), an open science project to make the calculated properties for all known inorganic materials publicly available to researchers to accelerate materials innovation.
