Working in the past 9 years on the rational design, synthesis and characterization of nanostructured materials composed of a large variety of components from carbons, metals, metal oxides, organic polymers, metal-organic frameworks to their corresponding composites. Especially aiming at the energy and environment related applications of these nanostructured materials including catalysis, adsorption&separation, and energy conversion&storage. Detailedly investigating several electrocatalytic reactions including oxygen evolution reaction, oxygen reduction reaction and hydrogen evolution reaction, as well as their practical applications in realistic energy devices, with recent effect focused on the design of gas cathode electrocatalysts for metal-O2 batteries and metal-CO2 rechargeable batteries.

2015 – 2017   ARC DECRA project, DE150101306, Porous Metal Phosphonate Ion Exchange Membranes for Redox Flow Batteries, $365,000 AUD, sole chief investigator (CI). Complemented by $35,000 AUD from the University of Adelaide.

2016 – 2018   ARC Linkage project, LP160100927, Reinforcement of Rubber Products using Nanostructured Carbon Materials, $700,000 AUD ($300,000 AUD from ARC and $400,000 AUD from industrial partner ), second CI (2 CIs in all).

Topic lecturer in Research Practice, School of Chemical Engineering, The University of Adelaide, Australia.
