About me: Grew up in Hunan province in China, I was attracted to renewable energy ever since I was a kid. After my undergraduate studies, I left for England to start my journey as a researcher.  I obtained my D.Phil degree in Physical Chemistry/Electrochemistry at Oxford University with Prof. Richard Compton. My Ph. D research focused at the kinetic studies of electron transfer process. This was the time I developed my deep interest for electrochemistry. I then explored catalyst design at the Nanyang Technological University with Prof. Zhichuan Xu. During which, I realized the importance of electrode kinetics and started my postdoc research with Prof. Thomas J. Meyer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During my stay at UNC, I had wide exposure to both molecular catalysts and heterogeneous catalysts for (photo)electrocatalysis of CO2. It was also the time I got to know the theory of the Proton Coupled Electron Transfer Process (PCET) and started to explore the mystery of electrode interface at a molecular level. Before joining CUHK, I was a postdoc research fellow with Prof. Edward H. Sargent at the University of Toronto. It was this experience showing me how we can transfer technologies from the lab to the real world. Outside the lab, one of my dreams is to complete a full marathon although it is not thermodynamically and kinetically favorable to me.
