Biography

Bowen Zhu received his BS degree in chemistry from Jilin University (China) in 2010. He obtained his PhD degree in materials science in 2016 from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, under the supervision of Professor Xiaodong Chen. After his postdoctoral fellow training at Professor Yang Yang's group, UCLA, he joined Professor Wenlong Cheng's group at Monash University in 2017, Australia, as a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) fellow funded by Australian Research Council. He now worked at School of Engineering, Westlake University, China, as an independent Principal Investigator (PI).

Research
