Short presentation

Being a postdoc researcher with dual material-electrochemistry expertise and chemical engineering background, I am passionate about linking fundamental chemistry with practical applications in energy storage.

Keywords: batteries energy storage electrochemistry gas analysis interphases materials characterizations

I obtained my PhD degree in Chemical and Biological Engineering from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (CN) and the Collège de France (FR, co-supervision) in 2018. My doctoral dissertation was on the synthesis and mechanistic understanding of oxyfluorides as high-energy cathodes for Li-/Na-ion batteries. After graduation, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Paul Scherrer Institute (CH) for three years, specializing in operando gas analysis for various battery chemistries. I joined the Department of Chemistry - Ångström Laboratory, Uppsala University (SE) as of 2021 for a second postdoc, developing new battery testing methodologies.

I was/am associated with the following teaching activities:

  • @UU: 1KB744 Introduction to Energy Storage, 1KB208 Inorganic Chemistry, 1KB276 Batteries for Electromobility
  • @ETH Zürich: 529-0507-00L Hands-on Electrochemistry for Energy Storage and Conversion Applications
  • @HKUST: CENG1010 Academic and Professional Development I, CENG1980 Industrial Training - Chemical Process Simulation with ASPEN Plus, CENG2220 Process Fluid Mechanics
  • High-throughput screening of electrochemical energy storage systems
  • Interfaces and interphases in rechargeable batteries
  • Sustainable and high-energy electrode materials
  • Advanced operando/in situ characterizations
