Department of Energy Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm was on grounds (Aug. 25, 2022) with DOE Director of the Office of Science Asmeret Asefaw Berhe, Ph.D. and UVA President Jim Ryan to announce $540M for research into technologies that transform energy production and cut emissions.
Chenxin grew up in Chizhou, Anhui, China. He holds a Bachelor of Science with a major in physics and minor in chemistry from Shenzhen University in 2022, where he did work on electrochemistry including electrocatalytic hydrogenation of series organic molecules, electrocatalysis of oxygen reduction reaction, and liquid organic hydrogen carriers. In his free time, he enjoys aerial photography, hiking, and following his favorite soccer team (Barcelona).
Weijie is working on the heterogeneous catalysis project here at the University of Virginia, focusing on developing advanced catalytic materials with high activity, durability and selectivity for both ambient-pressure and high-pressure CO2 hydrogenation reactions. He earned his PhD in 2017 at the Jiangnan University, where his project involved porphyrin-based porous materials. He comes to us from Dr. Shengqian Ma’s research group where he studied functional porous materials for catalysis and gas separation as a Postdoctoral Research Associate.
Tyler is a first-year student from Yorktown, Virginia. He is pursuing a B.S. in Chemistry with a specialization in Biochemistry on a pre-med track. In his free time, he enjoys snowboarding, playing soccer, and spending time outdoors.
It has been a good couple of months for UVA Chemistry graduate student Bukuru Anaclet. In March it was announced he had been awarded a GEM fellowship from the National GEM Consortium which includes an internship with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Then, in April, he learned he was being awarded a Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation.
