Imperial College London


Research Project:Unravelling the factors that control the activity and stability of catalysts for alkaline water electrolysis
Supervisors: Reshma Rao (ICL), Mary Ryan (ICL)

Yifeng earned his Master of Science in Chemistry with a specialization in Molecular Physics from Imperial College London in 2023. During his master’s program, he conducted research as a part of the Durrant Group at Imperial, focusing on the investigation of the impact of electrolyte cations and the role of iron in relation to the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) activity of nickel-based catalysts. In his current pursuit of a Ph.D., Yifeng is dedicated to a comprehensive exploration with spectroscopic and microscopic techniques of the various factors influencing the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) performance of nickel-based catalysts, as well as the examination of other materials such as iridium oxide and manganese oxides for OER in various perspectives.

The CDT provided me with the tools to develop my career as a researcher and to participate in Outreach activities to broaden my skills. I really enjoyed my time as a student in the CDT and look forward to continuing collaborations with the research groups there.
