Professor Jing Kong is a principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She received the B.S in chemistry from Peking University in 1997 and the Ph.D. in chemistry from Stanford University in 2002. From 2002 to 2003, she was a research scientist at NASA Ames Research Center, and from 2003 to 2004, she was a postdoctoral researcher at Delft University. She joined the MIT faculty in 2004 in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

Professor Kong’s research interests focus on the problem of combining the synthesis and fabrication of individual carbon nanotubes, and integrating them into electrical circuits. Applications of her research include the use of carbon nanotubes as extremely sensitive chemical sensors to detect toxic gases.

Professor Kong is member of the American Chemical Society, the American Physical Society, and the Materials Research Society. She received the 2001 Foresight Distinguished Student Award in Nanotechnology in 2001, the Stanford Annual Reviews Prize in Physical Chemistry in 2002, and the MIT 3M Award in 2005.
