Shi-Gang Sun obtained his Bachelor of Science from Xiamen University, China, in 1982, Doctorat d’Etat (Docteur ès Sciences Physiques) from Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI), France, in 1986. After one-year post-doctoral research in the Laboratoire d’Electrochimie Interfaciale du CNRS, France, he returned to China by the end of 1987, and served as associate professor and later full professor in 1991 at the Department of Chemistry of Xiamen University till now.
The main research interests of Prof. Sun include Electrocatalysis, Electrochemical Surface Science, Spectroelectrochemistry, Nanomaterials and Chemical power sources. He has published more than 550 SCI papers with peer citation over 21,000, obtained 14 innovation patents, co-authored 3 books entitled respectively “In-Situ Spectroscopic Studies of Adsorption at the Electrode and Electrocatalysis” (Elsevier, 2007), “Electrocatalysis” and “Nanostructured Electrocatalysts” (Chinese Chemical Engineering Press, 2014), and contributed by invitation 22 chapters to 19 scientific books.
Prof. Sun has been elected member of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015, fellow of International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) in 2007, and fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) in 2005. He has been awarded the “Brian Conway Prize” from International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE), “Distinguished Contribution Award” from the Chinese Society of Electrochemistry, “Le prix Franco-Chinois 2014-2015” jointly from Société Chimique de France (SCF) and Chinese Chemical Society (CCS), and the State Natural Science Award (2nd Degree) of China, “Achievement award” from Internatioanl Automotive Lithium Battery Associetion, and “Achievement award in spectroscopy” from Chinese Chemical Society and Chines Optics Society.
He is now editorial board member of Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry, Functional Materials Letters, ACS Energy Letters, Electrochemical Energy Review, National Science Review, Applied Chemistry and Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry, serving as associate editor to Electrochimica Acta, Spectral Analysis and Spectroscopy, Chinese Journal of Chemical Education, Acta Chimica Sinica, and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Electrochemistry.
