Weijie Zhang

Postdoctoral Researcher

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.
