Xiaoyan Tan, Ph.D.


Xiaoyan Tan is a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Rutgers University. She is working on the synthesis and characterization of physical properties of functional sold state materials such as magnetic materials, multiferroic materials, and thermoelectric materials.

Xiaoyan Tan joined Comscope in March 2016. In the Center she is mainly responsible for the preparation, structure analysis, and physical measurements of new potential thermoelectric materials - a process which is in parts guided by Comsuite material simulations that are carried out by the theoretical physicists of Comscope. Xiaoyan Tan really likes this great support.

During her career path she has always been inspired by the amazing structures and properties of chemical compounds.
