As a dedicated researcher, I specialize in the practical development of aqueous Zn-ion batteries. Throughout my PhD journey, I've been relentlessly pushing the boundaries of Zn metal anodes within aqueous Zn-ion batteries, with a primary focus on ensuring long-term stability and optimal performance.

My commitment to advancing the field is reflected in my track record. Since 2020, I've authored five research papers as the lead author, including publications in renowned journals such as Joule (IF=46.048), Advanced Materials (IF=32), Advanced Functional Materials (IF=19.924), and Energy Storage Materials (IF=20.83), among others. Beyond academic achievements, our team is dedicated to transitioning our research from the laboratory to real-world applications, with the goal of accelerating the adoption of aqueous batteries in the realm of energy storage.

My academic journey also includes a master's degree where I focused on the semiconductor industry, particularly in areas related to solar panels. At UNSW, I undertook comprehensive coursework, awarded excellent graduation. Additionally, I gained practical experience working in various semiconductor industries, including photovoltaic panels and infrared detector manufacturing. Besides my experiences in the industry, during my mastery, I parallelly work on a research project about Lithium-ion batteries to develop an amorphous transition metal anode.

What drives me in my career is the unwavering curiosity and passion for exploring diverse avenues to push the boundaries of research and innovation. I am always on the lookout for exciting opportunities and collaborations that can contribute to the continued development of cutting-edge technologies.
