Dr Zhang has received numerous prestigious fellowships and awards, including:

  • Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship Industry, the Australian Research Council, 2003 – 2006;
  • Future Fellowship, the Australian Research Council, 2009 – 2013;
  • Bond Medal, Electrochemistry Division, the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, 2012;
  • Robert Cattrall Early Career Medal, Analytical and Environmental Chemistry Division, the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, 2012;
  • Monash Research Accelerator Award, Monash University, 2013-2014.

The Monash Electrochemistry Group, jointly led by Dr Jie Zhang and Prof Alan Bond, consists of 15 – 20 researchers. The group has strong capability in the development of fundamental theories and instrumentation to advance modern electrochemistry. The Monash Electrochemistry Group has hosted many distinguished visitors and short term visiting academics/students from around the world. The current research activities in the group include:

  • Electrochemical activation of small molecules, such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen, water, alcohol, in the context of sensing and energy applications;
  • Design and synthesis of novel nanocomposite catalysts for pharmaceutical and energy applications;
  • Development of advanced dynamic electrochemical techniques and the corresponding quantitative theories.
