  • Professor Wenjie Shen received his PhD from Institute of Coal Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1995. From 1996 to 1998, he did postdoctoral research in Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology. Then he moved to Kansai Research Center, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Sciences and Technology (AIST), Japan as an NEDO Research Fellow during 1998-2001. In 2001, he was awarded the "Hundred Talents Program" from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and joined Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics as a full professor and a group leader. Currently, he is the director of State Key Laboratory of Catalysis. His research interests include: synthesis of metal and oxides nanoparticles with the controlled size, shape and crystal phase; the dynamic behavior of catalytic materials under or close to reaction conditions; applications of nanocatalysts to chemical reactions relevant to energy and environmental aspects. Prof. Shen has published more than 190 papers in catalysis and materials journals. He is an associate editor of Acta Phys-Chim Sinica and the member of editorial or advisory boards of ACS Catalysis, ChemCatChem, Catalysis for Sustainable Energy, Chinese Journal of Catalysis, Industrial Catalysis, Chinese Science Bulletin, Journal of Fuel Chemistry and Technology. He received awards of “National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars”, “National Catalysis Prize for Young Scientists, Catalysis Society of China” in 2010.
