Personal profile


Dr Jie Zhang is currently a senior lecturer at the School of Chemistry, Monash University and a Chief Investigator at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES). Dr Zhang is an electrochemist by training who has developed a solid background in both the experimental and theoretical aspects of electrochemistry during his research career. He has also obtained a broad experience in other research areas, such as biomedical engineering, materials engineering and nanotechnology. He has published 5 book chapters, 5 international patents and more than 170 refereed journal articles. His work has received more than 2800 citations with an H index of 31 based on the Web of Science. More information about his publication can be found at:

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 Prof Alan Bond and Dr Jie Zhang, 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, water, alcohol, in the context of biosensing and energy applications;
  • Synthesis of novel nanocomposite catalysts for pharmaceutical and energy applications;
  • Development of advanced dynamic electrochemical techniques and the corresponding quantitative theories.
