Summary

Dr. Hu is a Lecturer at the Department of Chemical Engineering of Brunel University London. He obtained his PhD degree in Chemical Engineering from National University of Singapore (NUS) under the supervision of Prof. Dan Zhao in 2016, working on novel synthetic approaches for the scale-up of functional MOFs and related composite materials for adsorption-based gas separation and heterogeneous catalysis. In July 2017, he joined the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology of the University of Cambridge as a research associate with Prof. Laura Torrente-Murciano, working on developing ammonia decomposition catalysts and catalytic membrane reactors for sustainable hydrogen production. In March 2019, he worked as a research associate with Prof. Andrea Carlo Ferrari at the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Cambridge, focusing on the electrochemical processing of 2D semiconductor materials and composites for flexible electronics and gas sensing applications.
