      Professor Jiang received his Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering from Cornell University in 1993 under Profs. Keith Gubbins and John Zollweg. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Califronia, Berkeley between 1993 and 1994 with Prof. Kenneth S. Pitzer and a research fellow at Caltech between 1994 and 1996 with Prof. William A. Goddard, III both in chemistry. He is currently the Boeing-Roundhill Professor of Engineering in the Department of Chemical Engineering and an adjunct professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington, Seattle. He was a visiting professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at MIT with Prof. Robert Langer in 2007. He is a senior editor for Langmuir, a fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and a member of the Washington Academy of Sciences. He received the Braskem Award for Excellence in Materials Engineering and Science, AIChE (2017). His research focuses on the molecular understanding, design and development of zwitterionic-based functional materials for biomedical and engineering applications.
