Research Overview


  • Dr. Jianfeng Mao received a PhD in Materials Engineering from the Institute for Superconducting & Electronic Materials (ISEM) at the University of Wollongong (UOW). His PhD research was focused on hydrogen storage materials. It was recognized by a Faculty Postgraduate Thesis Award as the best postgraduate thesis from the Faculty of Engineering of UOW, and followed by the postdoctoral appointment at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung and the University of Glasgow. He has been developing his career in the field of electrochemical energy storage since 2014, starting with when he was a research associate at the University of Maryland. He has published 50+ papers as the first or corresponding author in the leading discipline journals including Energy Environ. Sci. (2), J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Adv. Mater. (2), Adv. Energy Mater. (3), Adv. Funct. Mater. (2), Nano Energy (2), Energy Storage Mater. (2), J. Mater. Chem. A (5), and so on.

    His current research interests are in developing functional materials and electrolytes for next generation high-energy and large-scale batteries, and understanding their fundamentals of electrochemical processes in electrodes and at electrode/electrolyte interfaces. He is also interested in tailoring the thermodynamics and kinetics of hydrogen storage materials for efficient hydrogen storage and transport.
