    Personal profile


    Ziyi Zhong received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Wuhan University and Ph. D. from Nanjing University in China (1995). He spent five years carrying out postdoctoral research at Bar-Ilan University, the University of Washington at Seattle, and finally at the National University of Singapore. In 2002, he was awarded a Visiting Fellowship from NRC Canada and worked in an NRC Institute (BRI) in Montreal. During the period of 02/2003-09/2018, he worked in the Institute of Chemical and Engineering Sciences (ICES) under the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore and also held an adjunct associate professorship in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore (2013-2017), and a part-time position in Nanyang Environment and Water Research Institute (NEWRI) in NTU (20016-2018). He joined GTIIT as a full professor in Oct 2018.

    Before joining GTIIT, he worked on many projects related to heterogeneous catalysis, material science, wastewater treatment, and pharmaceuticals, and some of the industrial projects were supported by companies such as Corning Inc (USA), Honeywell (U.S.), Mitsubishi Chemical Corp (Japan), MicroMil CarbonTech (Singapore) and Glaxo SmithKline plc (GSK), etc.

    He has authored/co-authored ca. 225 international journal papers (cited ca. 15228 times as of Sept. 2021, Google scholar; 12978 times by Scopus ), 6 book chapters, and 5 granted patents (including 2 U.S. patents), with an h-index of 65 (Google scholar) and 60 (Scopus). Also, he contributed ca. 30 technical project reports for the industry.

    The studies in his group aim to address fundamental scientific issues/problems and develop practical applications, particularly for environmental remediation.
