Zhiwei Fang

WEBSITE(S)| Wang Research Group

Dr. Fang received his B.S. degree in chemistry from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2016 and received his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in 2020. His research focuses on the controlled synthesis and design of cost-effective nanomaterials, as alternatives to precious catalysts for key electrocatalysis processes, including oxygen evolution, hydrogen evolution, and nitrogen reduction. Those fundamental reactions play critical roles in practical applications, ranging from renewable energy conversion and storage, chemical or fuels production, water treatment, fertilization production, and more. Dr. Fang is working with Professor Haotian Wang to design new electrochemical reactors for advanced chemical engineering, such as lithium recovery, carbon capture, etc.
