Professor Sun's research in nanomaterials involves two related areas: (1) chemical synthesis and self-assembly of nanoparticles; (2) construction and elaboration of functional nanoparticles and their assemblies for applications in biomedicine, catalysis, and information storage.
Professor Sun received his PhD in Chemistry from Brown University in 1996. He joined the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center first as a postdoctoral fellow (1996-1998) and then as a research staff member (1998-2004). He returned to Brown in 2005 as a tenured faculty member and has been the Professor of Chemistry since 2008. He serves as the Co-Director of Brown's Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation (IMNI) and as an Associate Editor to the journal "Nanoscale" (the Royal Society of Chemistry).
