Haochuan Zhang


I got my B.S. in material chemistry at University of Science and Technology of China in 2016 and moved to Boston College and joined Prof. Dunwei Wang’s group in 2017. My study mainly centered on developing electrochemistry methods for energy storage and conversion.

Currently, I’m mainly involved in two lines of research projects. One is to study the solid electrolyte interphase (SEI), which is the critical component to enable the future high energy density batteries. I also worked with members of CIC to develop electrochemical methods for temporal and spatial control of polymerization. Our ultimate goal is to integrate N-carboxyanhydrides synthesis and polymerization together for the controllable synthesis of polypeptides from amino acids.
