Dr Huizhi Wang received her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 2011. After that, she worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the same department at HKU until August 2014. Huizhi joined the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Heriot-Watt University as an assistant professor since September 2014. Her main research interest focuses on electrochemistry for energy storage and carbon conversion. More specifically, she studies the electrochemistry and thermofluids in the systems / processes including fuel cells, batteries and electrochemical CO2 reduction. She has over 40 publications in peer-reviewed journals and international conferences, 3 invited book chapters and 6 patents. Huizhi was awarded with Young Scientist Award (Finalist in Engineering) by Hong Kong Institution of Science for her achievements in research.
