Junyuan Xu obtained his PhD degree from University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB) in Jan. 2014 supervised by Prof. Xindong Wang. During his PhD study, he went to Denmark as a one year Scientific Visitor at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) from Oct. 2011. His PhD project was on “High performance oxygen evolution reaction catalyst in acid for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) water electrolysis. Starting on Mar. 2014, he became a postdoc research fellow at the Catalysis and Materials Division (CMD) of Institute of Metal Research (IMR) with Prof. Dangsheng Su as supervisor, where he focused on the electro-catalytic activity origin of carbon dioxide conversion using heteroatom doped nanocarbon as the electro-catalyst. After two years training, he joined the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) as a Critcat Project Research Fellow and will work on non-precious earth-abundant electrocatalysts for hydrogen/oxygen evolution and oxygen reduction reactions in Aug. 2016.
