Hongchen Shen headshot

I seek a position in which I can perform cutting-edge research and contribute to the field of nanotechnology-environment nexus. I also seek a position where I can pass my knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm onto students through teaching and mentoring.

As a Future Faculty Fellow, I am most looking forward to gaining interview experience. 

Research Areas

I am primarily dedicated to addressing environmental pollution using nanomaterials. Specifically, I focus on designing functional nanomaterials with advantageous traits, such as enhanced visible light responsiveness, to eliminate waterborne and airborne contaminants.
