Wei (David) Wang


Wei (David) Wang studied chemistry at Lanzhou University and received a B.S. degree at the College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering in 2007. He then joined Prof. Wei Wang’s group at the State Key Laboratory of Applied Organic Chemistry in Lanzhou University, as a graduate student and performed research in the solid-state NMR studies on the reaction mechanism of zeolitic catalysis and on the polymorphs of pharmaceutical compounds under the guidance of Prof. Shi Bai (Co-supervisor). He got his Ph.D. degree in the year of 2012. He then spent two years as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the laboratory of Prof. Yining Huang at the Department of Chemistry in University of Western Ontario, Canada. He became an lecturer of chemistry at Lanzhou University in June 2015. His current research interests focus on application of solid-state NMR spectroscopic method to the study of pharmaceutical structures, host-guest chemistry and gas dynamics captured in porous materials.
