Modelling catalytic energy conversion reactions via DFT calculations

He received his M.Sc. degree in Physical Chemistry from Xinjiang University under the supervision of Prof. Yudai Huang in 2018. He completed his Ph.D. in 2022 at the University of Copenhagen under the supervision of Prof. Jan Rossmeisl. During his PhD, he was a visiting researcher with Ivano E. Castelli at the Technical University of Denmark. Currently, he is a postdoctoral researcher at the Laboratory for Chemical Technology at Ghent University under the supervision of Prof. Mark Saeys. His research interests include modeling catalytic conversion of carbon dioxide to value-added chemicals over multimetallic alloys and metal supported on metal oxides via Density functional theory (DFT) calculations.
