I obtained my PhD from Curtin University in 2016 and I am currently an ARC DECRA Fellow at School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials, ECMS of UoA. My research areas focus on environmental science and technology, green catalysis, and nanomaterials. I have published over 100 peer-reviewed research papers including 25 ESI Highly Cited Papers (1%) on Accounts of Chemical Research, Advanced Materials, Angew Chemie Int Ed, Matter, ACS Catalysis, Environmental Science & Technology etc. My publications received over 7000 citations with h-index of 45. I was awarded the Australian Research Council Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) and the Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researcher in 2020. I was seleted by The Australian newspaper as the Australian Research Early Achievers Leaderboard - TOP 40 Rising Stars for the past successive three years from 2018 to 2020.

I have been dedicated to seeking feasible applications of nanomaterials in environmental remediation and facilitating mechanistic insights into carbocatalysis with advanced protocols

My research areas include:
• Heterogeneous and green catalysis
• Water purification and advanced oxidation technologies
• Functional nanomaterials and nanotechnology
• Microplastic and bushfire contamination control
• Theoretical calculations
