Honors and Awards

Scientific Achievements & Selected Publications

I have published ~28 papers in several high-level chemistry/material journals (20 papers impact factor >10) and these papers have been cited more than 1600 times thus far. Among them, 17 papers were published with the first author or co-first author (overall impact factor >300), such as Journal of the American Chemical Society (4), Angewandte Chemie International Edition (1), Energy & Environmental Science (3), Advanced Energy Materials (2), Nano Energy (2), Chemistry of Materials (1) and so on. Four of them have been recorded as the highly cited papers by Web of Science and the highest citation of a single paper is over 500 times. Several works were reported by “Chemical & Engineering News” and highlighted as cover stories. Two USA and eleven Chinese patents have been applied and authorized so far and some key materials are going through the commercial application. I have been awarded the "Special Prize of President Scholarship for Postgraduate Students" in Chinese Academy of Science; "Excellent 100 Doctoral Dissertation" in Chinese Academy of Sciences; "Tang Aoqing Prize in Chemistry" etc.
