Jing Cao


Jing Cao received his Ph.D degree from Xiamen University with Prof. Nanfeng Zheng in 2017. In October 2017, he was appointed as a youth research professorship by the college of chemistry and chemical engineering of Lanzhou University. His research focuses on the design and synthesis of porphyrin and phthalocyanine-based energy materials for solar cells, such as dye-sensitized and perovskite solar cells.
