Jinhua Ye received her BSc from Zhejiang University, China, in 1983, and her Master and PhD from the University of Tokyo, Japan, in 1987 and 1990, respectively. She once worked in Osaka University as a faculty staff for a year and a half, and then moved to National Research Institute for Metals (former name of NIMS) in Oct., 1991. She has been the Director of Photocatalytic Materials Center from 2006-2011, and the Director of Environmental Remediation Materials Unit of NIMS from 2011-2016. She is now a Principle Investigator at International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA), National Institute of Materials Science (NIMS). She is also a Professor of Joint Doctoral Program in Graduate School of Chemical Science and Engineering, Hokkaido University, Japan from 2008, and the director of TU-NIMS Joint Research Center, and Professor of Materials Science at Tianjin University, China, since 2011. Her current research interests focus on the research and development of photo functional materials and their applications in the fields of environment preservation and new energy production. She has contributed more than 450 high quality journal publications (including Nature, Nature Mater., J. Am Chem. Soc., Angew Chem., Adv. Mater., and ACS Nano, etc), which have been cited over 25,000 times (h index: 80). She has been admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry since 2016, and also selected as the 2016 Highly Cited Researcher (Thomson Reuters). She is currently serving as the Associate Editor of RSC Catalysis Science & Technology, and also an International Organizing Committee (IOC) Member, International Conference on Photochemical Conversion and Storage of Solar Energy (IPS).
