Dr. Zhu obtained his B.S. degree (Chemistry) in 2010 from Nanjing
University (China). In 2015, he earned his Ph.D. degree with a thesis title of
“Designing materials, nanostructures and interfaces for Organic/Inorganic/Hybrid
Solar Cells” in 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. 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.
Several positions including Postdoctoral Fellows,
Postgraduate Students and Research Assistants are
available in Dr. Zhu’s research lab. Please kindly
