Xiaodong Zou

Xiaodong Zou is a professor at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry at Stockholm University. Her BSc is in physics from Peking University, followed by an MSc in metal physics from the Beijing University of Technology. She earned her PhD in structural chemistry from Stockholm University.

A leading structural chemist

Her scientific work focuses on developing methods to determine the atomic structure of nanocrystals using electron crystallography. She is one of Sweden’s leading structural chemists and has uncovered the complex structures of many substances - zeolites, porous metal-organic compounds, and quasicrystal approximations - through transmission electron microscopy.

“I am honoured to be elected a member of IVA. It is very special to me, and I look forward to contributing to IVA’s work,” said Dr Zou.
