Kailong Jin

Assistant Professor

Professional Bio:

Kailong Jin is currently an assistant professor in chemical engineering in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy (SEMTE) at Arizona State University (ASU), where he began in 2020. He is also affiliated with the Biodesign Center for Sustainable Macromolecular Materials and Manufacturing (BCSM3) at ASU. Kailong Jin earned his Ph.D. in chemical engineering with a Distinguished Graduate Researcher Award from Northwestern University under the direction of Professor John Torkelson. His graduate studies were focused on recyclable polymer networks and composites, thiol-ene chemistry, dynamic covalent chemistry, and nanoscale polymer thin films. Then, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher with Professors Frank Bates and Christopher Ellison in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at the University of Minnesota. His postdoctoral studies were focused on developing and processing sustainable polymers. His research at ASU broadly seeks to design, synthesize, engineer, and characterize functional polymeric materials that can help address technological issues in energy, the environment, and sustainability.
