Mei Shen

Assistant Professor, Chemistry

Mei Shen received a Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin under the direction of Prof. Allen J. Bard in 2011. Before joining the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Mei performed postdoctoral research in the laboratory of Prof. Shigeru Amemiya at the University of Pittsburgh (2012), where she successfully imaged the ion flux across a single nanopore in an aqueous environment with nano-resolved Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (SECM). Her current research interests interface between nanoscience, electrochemistry, and neuroscience, specifically involving studying neurotransmission at nanobiological structures, such as single synaptic cleft.
