Professor Chuan Zhao is a Professor in the School of Chemistry at the University of New South Wales, and is currently an ARC Future Fellow and the Chair of Electrochemistry Division Royal Australian Chemical Institute (EDRACI). His research interest focuses on developing nanoelectrochemistry technologies, and discovering novel nanomaterials, and their implications for clean energy and biomedicine applications. His team is also interested in ionic liquids chemistry and their applications for electrochemical energy conversion and storage and sustainable chemistry. We are exploring these new electrode and electrolyte materials for electrocatalysis and applications in water splitting for generation of hydrogen fuel, oxygen reduction for fuel cells and lithium-air batteries, and gas sensors. Professor Zhao has published five book chapters and 8 patents and more than 100 peer-reviewed articles in top-tier multidisciplinary journals including Nature Group journals, which have attracted over 3000 citations.
