Shujun Zhang is a Senior Scientist at the Material Research Institute and Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University. He was a recipient of the Ferroelectrics Young Investigator Award of the IEEE UFFC Society in 2011. He is a senior member of IEEE. He is associate editor for IEEE Transaction on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control (UFFC), Journal of the American Ceramic Society and Journal of Electronic Materials. He holds three issued patents, two patent applications and has coauthored more than 280 papers in the area of functional single crystals and ceramics with h index of 35. He is now focusing on the structure- property- performance relationship of high temperature, high power and high performance piezoelectric crystals and polycrystalline ceramics, for sensor and transducer applications.
