Dr. Chunyi Zhi obtained his Ph.D. in physics from Institute for Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2004. Then he moved to National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) in Japan as a post-doctoral fellow, followed by an ICYS research fellow, researcher (faculty) and senior researcher (permanent). He began his academic appointment in the Department of Physics and Materials Science at the City University of Hong Kong in 2012. Dr. Chunyi Zhi's research interests include mass production of BN/BCN nanostructures, polymer nanocomposites and thermally conductive electrically insulating polymer composite materials etc. Dr. Chunyi Zhi is also interested in energy-related electrochemical and photoelectrochemical devices by BCN nanostructures and nanomaterials for sewage treatment. Dr. Chunyi Zhi has published around 100 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals, including J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. In. Ed., ACS Nano and Adv. Mater. etc. These publications generated an h-index of 30 and more than 2500 other-citations.
