Personal profile


Dr. Xiangkang Zeng obtained his Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering from Monash University Australia in August 2017. He then worked at The Hong Kong University of Science and  Technology (HKUST) for one-year postdoc research training. Now he is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Chemical Engineering Monash University. His current research interest focuses on the development of two-dimensional functional photocatalysts such as graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4), metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and covalent-organic frameworks (COFs), and their applications in solar-to-chemical energy conversion, water treatment and antibacterial purpose.  He has published more than 25 papers as first author and co-author in prestigious journals, including Advanced Functional Materials, ACS Catalysis, Angewandte Chemie, Applied Catalysis B, Water Research, and Chemical Engineering Journal, etc.  As the first author, one of his papers was selected as “Best Paper 2019” in the  journal of Environmental Science: Nano publsihed by Royal Society of Chemistry. He was one of the winners for the highly competitive and prestigious “Chinese government award for outstanding self-finance students abroad” in 2017.
