About me


Check our Homepage for more information.


Dr. Zhehao Huang graduated from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, P. R. China, in 2009 with a B.Sc. in Chemistry, and received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the same university in 2014. He is currently a researcher at Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry, Stockholm University. His current research interests include 1) development of electron diffraction methods, high resolution electron microscopy imaging methods, and their application in nanoporous materials. 2) Reveling structure-property relationships, and develop novel nanoporous materials, in view of applications in electrochemistry, photocatalysis and heterogeneous catalysis.
