Nanomaterials, Fuel Cells, Flow Batteries
Dr. Jing Qi received her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2012. She joined the Hawai‘i Natural Energy Institute at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa in July 2015 as a Postdoctoral Fellow. She was promoted to junior researcher in March 2019. Her areas of expertise include nanomaterials, electrocatalysis, fuel cells, and flow batteries. More specifically, her recent experience has encompassed several aspects of proton exchange membrane fuel cell contaminated by species from multiple sources: interactions between contaminants in mixtures, degradation mechanisms, and mitigation strategies. She is currently focusing on the development of synthesis techniques for efficient and durable transition metal carbide catalysts for fuel cells, water electrolyzers, and flow batteries. Her work has led to 26 journal papers, 9 proceedings, and 2 patents.
