Wei-Shun Chang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UMass Dartmouth. He received Ph. D. from UT Austin in 2007 supervised by Prof. Paul Barbara. He joined Link group at Rice University in 2007 as a postdoctoral researcher and became a research fellow since 2012. His research interest is to study optical properties of plasmonic nanomaterials at single particle level for the applications of renewable energy, optical sensing, and medical treatment. He has developed steady-state and time-resolved spectroscopic techniques to investigate collective optical properties of plasmonic nanoparticles, plasmon-mediated chemistry, chiral plasmonics, and plasmon optomechanics.
