Dr. Zhu obtained his B.S. degree (Chemistry) in 2010 from Nanjing
University (China). In 2015, he earned his Ph.D. degree from Hong Kong
University of Science and Technology (HKUST). Then he moved to the department of
materials science and engineering in University of Washington, Seattle and
worked as a postdoctoral fellow during 2015-2017. He moved back to HKUST as
visiting scholar in 2017. Dr. Zhu joined the City University of Hong Kong as an
Assistant Professor in June 2018.
His research mainly focuses on the design
inorganic/organic materials, as well connecting the
materials synthesis, physical properties and device
performance for optoelectronics application. The
current application interests include solar cells,
transistors, light-emitting diodes, and
electrochemical devices (e.g. batteries,
Several positions including Postdoctoral Fellows,
Postgraduate Students and Research Assistants are
available in Dr. Zhu’s research lab. Please kindly
