About Feng Jiao

Feng Jiao obtained his BSc in chemistry at Fudan University (2001) and his PhD degree in Chemistry at University of St Andrews (Scotland, 2008), before moving to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory as a postdoctoral scholar. He spent two years in Berkeley developing solar fuel technology and joined in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department at the University of Delaware as an assistant professor in 2010. He has published more than 50 journal papers, such as Nature Communications, J. Am. Chem. Soc., and Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. His work in electrochemistry and catalysis has been recognized by several awards, including the MRS Graduate Student Award, the ACS PRF Award, and the NSF CAREER Award. His current research activities include nanoporous materials, electrocatalysis, batteries, and solar fuel production.
