Associate Professor Supervisor of Doctorate Candidates Supervisor of Master's Candidates
Dr. Guanghui Zhang is an associate professor of chemical engineering at Dalian University of Technology. He obtained his B.S. in chemistry and M.S. in organic chemistry from Nanjing Normal University in 2007 and 2010, respectively. He received his PhD in chemistry at Wuhan University in 2014 (Prof. Aiwen Lei's group). From 2012 to 2014, he was a visiting graduate student at Argonne National Laboratory. In 2014, he joined Prof. Adam S. Hock's group at Illinois Institute of Technology/Argonne National Laboratory as a senior research associate, and in 2016, he moved to Purdue University working with Prof. Jeffrey T. Miller. He joined Dalian University of Technology in 2018. His research interest lies in heterogeneous catalysis, homogeneous catalysis, organometallic chemistry, and synchrotron-related X-ray spectroscopy. His current research focuses on the development of new catalytic materials for energy and environmental applications.
