Sun, Wenping Dr.

Honorary Fellow

  • Australian Institute for Innovative Materials
  • Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials

Top Publications


Research Overview


  • My research is mainly focused on the development of efficient materials and nanostructures, and the fundamental understanding of electrochemical processes for energy storage and conversion devices, including electrocatalysis, batteries, solid oxide fuel cells, and supercapacitors.
    My current research interests include: 1) surface/interface tuning of nanomaterials; 2) 2D materials and their heterostructures; 3) surface/interface electrochemistry.

Selected Publications


Potential Supervision Topics


  • 1. Cost-effective electrocatalysts for water splitting
    2. Low-Pt electrocatalysts for fuel cells
    3. In-situ/operando electrochemistry
    4. Other emerging topics in electrocatalysis and electrosynthesis
