Weijie Zhang

July 20, 2022 -- Bukuru

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.
