    Personal profile


    Dr. Weiran Zheng is an Associate Professor of Chemistry at Guangdong Technion - Israel Institute of Technology (GTIIT). His main research interest is electrocatalysis for energy conversion. So far, he has published more than 30 papers in ACS Catalysis, ACS Energy Letters, Matter, Advanced Energy Materials, and other electrochemical/electrocatalytic journals. He also serves as the associate editor of Heliyon Chemistry section (a Cell Press journal).

    Dr. Weiran Zheng’s lab (Electrochemical Interface & Conversion Group) in GTIIT mainly focuses on in situ characterization techniques with electrochemistry, which enables direct observation of the changes of electrodes/interfaces/electrolytes to understand the electrochemical phenomena from a chemical/structural perspective. The group aims to use such information to guide the construction of efficient, highly stable, and practical electrocatalytic systems for a sustainable world.
