Hongjie Dai (Chinese: 戴宏杰; born May 2, 1966 in Shaoyang, China)[1] is a Chinese-American Chemist and Applied Physicist, the J.G. Jackson & C.J. Wood Professor of Chemistry at Stanford University.[2] He is a leading figure in the study of carbon nanotubes.[3][4][5][6]

Dai received a B.S. in Physics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, in 1989, and M.S. in applied sciences from Columbia University in 1991, and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Harvard University in 1994 under the direction of Prof. Charles Lieber. After postdoctoral research at Harvard, he joined the Stanford faculty as an assistant professor in 1997.[1][2]

Among his awards are the American Chemical Society's ACS Award in pure chemistry, 2002,[2][7] the Julius Springer Prize for Applied Physics, 2004,[2][8] and the American Physical Society's James C. McGroddy Prize for New Materials, 2006.[2][9] He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2009, and to the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2011.[2][10][11]
