University College London, UK

Prof. Junwang Tang is a Member of Academia Europaea,  a Royal Society Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellow,  Fellow of the European Academy of Sciences, Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and Professor of Materials Chemistry and Engineering in the Department of Chemical Engineering at University College London. He received PhD in Physical Chemistry from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (2001), China.

His research interests encompass photocatalytic small molecule activation (eg. CH4, N2, H2O, C6H6 and CO2) and microwave catalysis (e.g. plastic recycling), together with the investigation of the underlying charge dynamics and kinetics by state-of-the-art spectroscopies. In parallel, he also explores the design of the chemical reactors for the above-mentioned processes, resulting in >190 papers published in Nature Catalysis, Nature Energy, Nature Reviews Materials, Chemical Reviews, Chem. Soc. Rev. Materials Today, Nature Commu., JACS, Angew Chemie with >17,000 citations. Prof. Tang has also received many awards, the latest of which include the RSC Corday-Morgan Prize 2021 and 2021 IChemE Innovative Product Award, besides the Runner-up of IChemE Research Project 2020, IChemE Business Start-Up Award 2019 and the 2018 IPS Scientist Award. He also sits on the Editorial Board of four international journals, eg. the Editor of Applied Catalysis B and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Advanced Chemical Engineering, Associate Editor of Chin. J. Catal. and Asia-Pacific Journal of Chemical Engineering besides sitting on the Advisory Board of 7 other journals.
