Dr. Zhenbang (Charlie) is a Postdoctoral Research Associate under the supervision of Prof. Kourosh Kalantar-Zadeh in the Centre for Advanced Solid and Liquid based Electronics and Optics (CASLEO, http://www.casleo.unsw.edu.au) in the School of Chemical Engineering, UNSW Sydney. He received both his Bachelor and Master of Engineering in Shanghai University, Shanghai, China. During his PhD candidature in UNSW (2016 - 2020), Charlie had Dr. Sophia Gu and Scientia Prof. Justin Gooding as his supervision team. He focused his research on engineering nano-catalysts for cancer therapeutic purposes. After obtaining PhD, Charlie joined CASLEO and continued his material engineering research towards liquid metal-based nanocatalysts. He is now focusing on liquid metal-based catalytic systems for chemical and environmental processes.
