Yue Zhao received his BSc in 1982 from Chengdu University of Science and Technology (now Sichuan University). He went to France in 1983 for his graduate studies at the cole Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de Paris (ESPCI). After obtaining his Ph.D. from the Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris 6) in 1987, he went to Canada for postdoctoral studies at the Université Laval. In 1991, he joined the Chemistry Department of the Université de Sherbrooke and has been a full professor since 2000. Zhao’s main research interests are the design, synthesis, study and exploitation for applications of self-assembled, nanostructured and stimuli-responsive polymers and liquid crystalline materials. He has published 200 papers in primary journals and edited a book on azobenzene-containing polymers and liquid crystals. He was awarded the Changjiang Scholar Chair Professorship (at Sichuan University) by the Ministry of Education of China in 2007, the Macromolecular Science and Engineering Award of the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) in 2013, and elected CIC Fellow in 2014.
