Education and Appointments:

Zheng Wang obtained his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Molecular Engineering at Kyoto University in 2015, supervised by Prof. Tsunehiro Tanaka. Since 2015, he joined the Japan Technological Research Association of Artificial Photosynthetic Chemical Process (ARPChem) as a postdoctoral researcher and worked on overall water splitting in Prof. Kazunari Domen group at The University of Tokyo and Shinshu University (Japan). In 2019, he started his career at Research center for Eco-Environmental Sciences, CAS. He is interested in the utilization and conversion of greenhouse gases (CO2 and CH4) based on the photocatalysis, photothermal catalysis and photoelectrochemical process. He has publications in the highly-impact international journals, e.g. Nature Catalysis,Nature Materials,Chemical Society Reviews,Angewandte Chemie International Edition.


Research Interest:

The utilization and conversion of greenhouse gases (CO2 and CH4) and the water splitting for hydrogen production based on the photocatalysis, photothermal catalysis and photoelectrochemical process
